#### Official Guide IDIOMS

Sun Jun 03, 2007 6:49 am
Hi to all,

I want to start a thread that covers all the idioms from official guide only. This thread will serve as a one stop shop for the idioms from the official guide.

Format would be :

Serial number. IDIOM
OG EXAMPLE ONLY

Lets keep this thread clean and organized. Hence pls refrain from posting any concerns/questions/comments/feedback in this thread. To discuss anything related to this thread, I have created a separate thread at http://www.beatthegmat.com/viewtopic.php?p=12458#12458

I will start with the first OG idiom and an OG example

Good luck and thanks to all

2. depends on whether

Beyond the immediate cash flow crisis that the museum faces, its survival depends on whether it can broaden its membership and leave its cramped quarters for a site where it can store and exhibit its more than 12000 artifacts
