  • all in. So this one is understand. It means you couldn't understand it all. You

  • couldn't take it all in. Your brain couldn't absorb it all. Maybe the words

  • were too technical. Okay the third meaning here. To admit somebody usually

  • in to you know, with an institution like schools are an institution. The example

  • here we use is with a hospital. So here's the example. That hospital is completely
