Phrasal verbs -Take
A phrasal verb is a verb with more than one word. It is made of a main verb plus a preposition or a particle.The meaning of a phrasal verb is different from the meaning of the main verb, and it depends on the second or/and third part of phrasal verb i.e. preposition or particle that comes after the main verb. There are more than 10,000 phrasal verbs in English .
Phrasal verbs are often used in speaking or in informal writing. There are four types of phrasal verbs.
1 – Transitive: This type of phrasal verb needs an object to complete the sentence. Example: Mary looks after the students.
2 – Intransitive: This type of phrasal verb doesn't need an object. Example: The soldier ran away from the field.
3 – Separable: This type of phrasal verb can be separated in the sentence. Example: She picked up her child from school yesterday. She picked her child up from school yesterday.

Take (Phrasal verb)
We use take in a lot of phrases. The meanings are: hold something with one's hands, and remove (someone or something) from a specific place. Also take can mean “remove without permission”.
We don't use take when we talk about having a meal or a drink. Have is more often used in that case : have breakfast/lunch,etc.
