Assunto:  Get to grips with phrasal verbs!
 
Mensagem:  Deivis,

I've done a quick research on these five phrasal verbs and I think I've figured out four of them. But I warn you I'm just an English student as well, and can't give you assertive answers but only likely suggestions. So, please, check them with somebody versed in English.

'to have an animal killed because it is very ill or suffering badly' -> to put down

'to abolish something' -> I don't know about this one. It's probably "to do away with", but you also have to think over "to blot out" and other phrasal verbs that we could understand as abolish synonyms, and then pick one of them out.

'to make a mistake' -> to slip up

'to recover from a serious illness' -> to get over

'to receive criticism or blame for something' -> to come in for
