Thank you very much.
Here is the second list of verbs I'd like you to check.I'd also need to rephrase each sentence using a verb which is not phrasal. Can you please help me?

1) A long strike threatened to bring down the Government
2) I’m sure this tablet will bring the temperature down.
3) The plane was brought down by an anti-aircraft rocket.
4) The deal was brought off at last!
5) You can’t get around it: you have to tell him the truth
6) I can’t get around to thanking them for their hospitality
7) The murderer got away with a light punishment./As usual she said something ver rude: we can’t always let her get away with it.
8) I’ll get back at you for being so rude to me.
9) She never got around to thanking them for their hospitality. I promise I’ll get around to taking the examination
9) We must get off at the next stop.
I’ll phone you as soon as I’ve got the children off to school.
I can’t get off early, I’ll come with you to the doctor’s. We usually get off work at 5 o’clock on Friday.
