Hello all. Can you give me some examples to illustrate the difference between fall down and fall through?
Can "a plan falls down" as in the sentence below:
All his plans to start his own business fell down (1)
Is it better if I replace "fell down" with "fell through"? I am quite puzzled because they have almost the same meaning in some dictionaries.
Among its three meanings given, fall down has a meaning as "to fail" as in
- Where do you think the plan falls down? (2)
As for fall through, it means "to fail to happen" as in:
- We found a buyer for our house, but then the sale fell through. (3)
Can you, master help me?
