I don't understand this sentence :cry:
Can someone can explain me the meaning?

She didn't even try to raise the matter at the meeting. She just copped out completely.

Thanks a lot :D

She gave up; she copped out.

Pronunciation
Past tense: "copped" [kapt]
Present tense: "cop" [kap]

EX: You said you would go to the movie with us, but now you're not going to go? Don't cop out on us. You should come. :D

Try,

Can someone explain the meaning to me?

All the best, :D

Thanks for your correct and help. But I have one question on this again.
You wrote that the Past tense and the Present tense are the same writing.
I have copied this sentence from a grammer exercise in the internet.

It is the last sentence.

Is "copped" eventually Amerikan-English? Or is there a misspelling?

Thanks in advance
Dany
