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  Ms. Sue, Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:32pm
We also use # 5.

English  Princess Anna, Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:36pm
yeah, that too

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

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  rfvv, Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:50pm
What about the following?
"...but she became bad."?

English  Writeacher, Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:52pm
No ... only #s 1, 4, and 5 would be correctly used.

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.
