What does the idiom "give them the run-around mean?"?

My hmwk says to match the idiom with the word that best describes it. Some words may be used more than once:

a.move b.sad c.satisfy d.angry e.friendly f.evade ((the idiom is give them the run-around))

    f. evade ... that's the correct answer.

    To give someone the run around means to try to fool them

    I have the answer - stand by. I'm kind of busy, but will get back to you. Make sure you have filled out the request form fully, or I won't answer. Also include your application fee. Also, you need to tell me the exact name of your class, the teacher's middle name, and the full names of each student in the class.

    --> That's an example of me giving you the run-around.

    Source(s): I worked in tech support (something like it) at one time.

    evade. The idiom means to keep telling them anything but the answer they are looking for.

    it means "beating about the bush" lol. Talking about the thing indirectly, without coming to the point.
