Student or Learner
I have two questions to ask:
I gave the car a thorough _______ before buying it.
a. inspection b. check-up
The key is 'a'. Could you please kindly explain why 'b' isn't correct?
The company ______ the crisis by obtaining a low-interest loan from the bank.
a. got round b. got through
The key is 'a' but I think it should be 'b'. Is that right?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.

2. With this one, it depends on whether it was the company itself that was in crisis -(got round)- or some external crisis, such as a national economic crisis.-(got through). This is not clear from the rather bald sentence.
1. Machinery is inspected for faults; people have a check-up to see if they have any early signs of a serious medical condition developing.
