So I put her(my pet turtle) in the water and blocked the sunlight, but she got worse.
---------------
1. She got worse.
2. She got bad.
3. She got best.
4. She got better.
5. She got well.

(Can we use all the expressions? Are they all grammatical? Instead of #1 can we use #2 in the example sentence?)

    Well, I don't think you can use #2, but you could use
    #1 and #4.

  • English - , Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:32pm

    We also use # 5.

  • English - , Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:36pm

    yeah, that too

  • English - , Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:45pm

    Do you mean we can use 'she got bad' in the example sentence?

    Do you mean we cannot use 'she got bad' in the example sentence?

  • English - , Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:46pm

    No. We wouldn't say: "I put her(my pet turtle) in the water and blocked the sunlight, and she got bad"

    Say that out loud, and see how silly it sounds. :)

    Thank you. you mean"but she got bad" is staange?

  • English - , Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:50pm

    What about the following?

    "...but she became bad."?

  • English - , Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:52pm

    No ... only #s 1, 4, and 5 would be correctly used.

  • English - , Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:53pm

    When you say "worse," you say that the turtle's condition became more bad when you put her in the water. If you say bad, it means that she was good at first, but then became bad.
