Which is not an example of an idiom found in "Miss Rosie"?
a. "when I watch you"
b. "[you] used to be called"
c. "waiting for your mind"
d. "I stand up"

i think it's A. idiom is something can't be understood through literal definition (?). like for example: to fall in love. is an idiom.
and D; stand up for something is an idiom
C; waiting for your mind is an idiom because it means waiting for your thoughts
i'm not sure but i think B would also be considered an idiom

so my guess is A. is that correct?

    Hmmmm. THe woman actually was called that. B.

    B? are you sure?

    I think this is a poor question. In my opinion, neither A nor B, as stated, are idioms.

    yea i'm so confused
    what should i put?

    Tell them that the question is bad and that both A and B are right.

    Yeah -- I know -- you probably can't do that -- so use your best judgment.
