Depends on HOW it is used!!

I can't make sense of this test.

Thanks engee30 and susiedqq for replying.

If I am talking to someone and I refer to something I have just said to that person when I ask "Does it make sense?". Is "make sense" a phrasal verb in this context?

You must have gotten me wrong, Burwood - make sense will never be the phrasal verb in any context.
