One of the sentences below are [IS] not correct. Which one and why?
 
a) The metaphor gets the idea across well.

Ok – with the meaning that the metaphor communicates the idea

b) The metaphor gets across the idea well.

Ok but ambiguous because can mean that the metaphor ‘covers’ the idea – so not really ok!

c) The metaphor gets it across well.

As per a) above

d) The metaphor gets across it well.

As per b) above
 
I may have missed something

Are we doing your homework for you??
