While "recover" is also an antonym for "get over," "come down with" is a closer antonym as it specifically refers to becoming ill rather than recovering from a difficult situation. "Die," "fall," and "grind around" are not antonyms for "get over" in any context.

    • E.

      Break up

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Be after
    B. Go after
    Explanation
    Both "be after" and "go after" are expressions that mean to pursue or try to obtain something or someone. They both convey the idea of chasing or following after something. "Give up" means to stop pursuing or trying to obtain something, which is the opposite of chasing. "Go away" means to leave or move away from a place, which is unrelated to chasing. "Break up" means to end a relationship or group, which is also unrelated to chasing. Therefore, "be after" and "go after" are the closest options to the concept of chase.
