I have tried to make my own sentences with some common phrasal verbs. Please have a look and write to me if there is any sort of grammatical or usage mistake.Thanks in advance.

Put up: I can't put up my classmate or I can't put up with my classmate.
Turn up: She turned up last night or She turned up late last night.
Give in: We can't give in to the student's demands.
Check in: We checked in at Beach Hotel at 1: p.m.
Step down: We will not have any teacher if she steps down from her job.
Run down: He runs his classmates down a lot.
Come across: We have never come across this word before.
Open out: This class room opens out into another one.
Turn down: I don’t want to turn down this offer.
Turn in: If you don’t turn in your home work, you will not be allowed to attend the class.
Take back: I was taken aback when I saw his paper.
Cut in: I got terribly scared when he cut in between two trucks last night.
Cross out: This answer is full of crossed out words.

"I can't put up my classmate" means I can't give him a place to stay.
"I can't put up with my classmate" means I can't tolerate him

Give in: We can't give in to the students' demands.

Check in: We checked in at Beach Hotel at 1 p.m.

Open out: This classroom opens out into another one.

Turn in: If you don’t turn in your homework, you will not be allowed to attend the class.

All the others are fine.
