Business Idiom in English, Intermediate level

ESL/EFL Test #127 “Ways of commenting”, answer 5

The first time you see the view you can’t believe it. It almost takes your breath away.

Correct answer: (d) awayThe first time you see the view you can’t believe it. It almost takes your breath away.

The widely known expresison is “to take one’s breath away”, which means “to amaze, astonish to a high degree”.

“to take one’s breath out” doesn’t have this idiomatic meaning, and therefore makes no sense in the sentence.
