1. to get even with someone
2. by all means
3. to resort to
4. to crack down on someone/something
5. the cream of the crop
6. to show off
7. to get the gist of something
8. to do a dry run
9. to break even
10. to take the bull by the horns
And can you help me complete these proverbs by the way... and give me a sentence including them as examples
1. you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink (what's the meaning)
2. six of one....
