    take off and take up; slice

    Dear teachers,

    I have two questions to ask:

    No.1
    __________ that time, the reform had begun to take effect, and the economy had begun to take ________.

    a. By, off b. By, up

    The key is "a" but I think both are correct. Is that right?

    No.2
    An auction provides the Web space and individuals "rent" a ___________ of that space.

    a. piece b. slice
    The key is "a" but I think both are correct. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    No.2
    An auction provides the Web space and individuals "rent" a ___________ of that space.

    a. piece b. slice
    The key is "a" but I think both are correct. Is that right? I think both could be used.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.
