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?

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.
