       Option C
    Explanation:
    Some phrasal verbs can be separated when we used them with objects. This means that we have a choice. We can put the object between the verb and the preposition, or we can put the object at the end, just like we do for inseparable phrasal verbs.

    View Answer
       Option D
    Explanation:
    It’s also important to remember that if the object is quite long, we usually do not separate the phrasal verb. It is not grammatically incorrect to separate the phrasal verbs in these cases, but it is much clearer for the listener if we do not separate the phrasal verb.

  9. Soumalya Pal

    Mam Plzz say which are separable and inseparable phrasal verb? Getting it difficult to choose the option.

    1. Srishti

      You can insert other words into the middle of a separable phrasal verb.
      Inseparable phrasal verbs can be transitive (i.e., they can take a direct object), but you can’t insert that direct object into the middle of the phrasal verb. In other words, they can’t be separated, thus their name.

    1. Srishti

      Fill out is inseparable phrasal verb
      so only option iv is correct, structurally as well as gramatically
      Here, in these questions, you need to focus both on grammar as well as on structure of the sentnce
