You can use the credit card to … cash from your account at any time.

(a) pay
(b) get
© earn
(d) spend

As far as I know there is an expression like pay (in) cash where
the preposition “in” is optional.

Either “pay” or “get” is correct. DOZY, could you tell which one is proper?

Many thanks…

I’m not certain which answer is expected. In one way (b) seems more likely than (a). However, whether you actually use a credit card to “get cash from your account” is somewhat debatable in my opinion. That makes it sound like your credit card account has a positive cash balance (i.e. there is positive cash there to “get”), which, given the way credit cards work, is not usually the case.

Perhaps someone else could comment on this.


 Could anyone comment on this?..

I would not be happy with either answer when used with ‘credit card’, as a credit card does not generally deal with cash from your account.
I would bve happy with both answers if used with ‘debit card’ as this card operates directly from your bank account, but a credit card works with borrowed money from somewhere other than your own account.

You can use a debit card to get cash from your account (via cashpoint or cashback services, etc.)
You can use a credit card to get cash loaned to you against the balance on your account.
You can use a debit card to pay cash from your account (in a shop, etc.)
You can use a credit card to pay an amount which would then be owed on your credit account.

Hi, Beeesneees!

Thank you for detailed information on credit/debit cards.

Thus, can I confidently say that this test has been incorrectly set?

I tyhink the question has been put together very badly.
