Hi, Ahmed Imam Attia,

Hello. Could you please help me? Which of the following sentences is correct and which isn't? Why?

1- The match ended when one of the two players gave up to the other.

2- The match ended when one of the two players gave up.

3- The match ended when one of the two players gave to the other up.

Thank you.

I'd go with '2'. 'Give up' here means to 'admit defeat'. I think '1' could work if you use 'gave in'. '3' doesn't work at all.
