    Please add more details to your question. It's unclear what you are asking. What is CAT and what meaning do you need? – SovereignSun Apr 18 '17 at 7:36
  • ? You know that these two sentences mean completely different things, yes? So they're both correct, but you just need to add "the" before "CAT". – Teacher KSHuang Apr 18 '17 at 7:38

They are both grammatically correct. You, as a person, could possibly both take and give the CAT. That is, unless CAT cannot be "given" - in which case it is illogical, but not ungrammatical.

I assume you want to say that you are a student taking the class. Then you would say so.

However, you could also be a teacher giving (teaching) the class. Then you would say so.
