I know it seems to be a simple answer but that's why I'm asking
what should be, not
Going out is composed of two words, obviously. Each of these has its opposite. So if I were to take the opposite of the phrasal verb, it could be any of these three:
- Going in (
inbeing the opposite of
- Coming out (
Comingbeing the opposite of
- Coming in (Taking the opposites of each word)
Each of these depends on the position of the speaker.
Going out and
coming out would be the same to two different people if one is inside a room and the othe outside. Similar explanation applies to
going in and
coming in. In a sense, both pairs are the synonyms and antonyms.
So what should be the right answer?
