🗂 The answer to the previous task is here.
➡️ The annual conference will be ......... soon, we need to start preparing for it now.
⚽️ coming up
🏀 coming around ✅
🥎 coming along
WHY??TO COME UP
: It wouldn't be incorrect to use this phrasal verb here in the meaning of "it happens soon and needs to be dealt with". It would even be colloquially correct. However, not when we have "to come around" among the options. TO COME AROUND
: In this context it means "to happen again, at its usual time". The hint was "the annual". So when dealing with tasks like that, always pay attention to words that give you the background, they are always there for a reason. TO COME ALONG
: It means "to appear/arrive, to go somewhere, to make progress" and everything around that. It's obviously the odd option here.
So, to conclude, COME UP
is possible and generally correct, but COME AROUND
is grammatically strong and totally correct, in this example.
🗂 Continuing the previous thought.
➡️ So, having the conference at hand
, here's what we're going to do - we set ......... the next 2 days just for collecting information from all departments.
