please tell me the difference between "carry on" and "carry out".
'Carry on' means to continue what you are doing.
Hi, what are you doing.
I'm doing my homework.
Another usage is colloquial and might possibly be regional. Two people who are dating one another secretly are said to be 'carrying on'.
'Carry out' means to see something through to completion. Completion is the big difference in the two phrases. If you carry out a plan, you must see it through to the end. Another meaning would be to 'carry out the trash'.
