Correct answer: GET
Translation of the sentence: “Stop smoking right away or you will get sick” – the doctor told me. (implied: stop smoking to avoid illness) Translation of answers:
A. I was ordered not to smoke to get better. → wrong meaning
B. The doctor advised me to stop smoking to prevent disease. → true
C. The doctor suggested smoking together to cure the disease → wrong meaning
D. I was warned not to smoke a lot. → wrong, lack of meaning
The correct answer is B, because the question implies that smoking should be stopped to avoid illness and answer B changes the direct sentence to the indirect advice form of advice according to the structure “advise sb to V”, suitable for that meaning.
The remaining three answers are incorrect or lack meaning.
