“iron in” is not the correct answer.

The answer is iron out, but I need explanations about because I am not convinced that. Thanks.

Hi Cristovam,

with many phrasal verbs there often is no logical explanation. I think the idea of ‘iron out’ is to remove some “wrinkles” – some issues with a project so the preposition is ‘out’. Please let me know if this makes sense.

Hello, Sir Toresten. Thank very much for the correction of my mistake. Please sir, do native English speakers know all the phrasal verbs and collocations and their meanings?
