I guess this might be intuitive for natives but I am rather confused with dictionary definitions. In one text about questioning subjects in a survey, there are two distinct sentences the respondent is expected to complete. As in the following, "go for a ride" and "take rides" are mentioned in two different sentences, while I assume they mean the same. Isn't it?
Sentence stem: When you first get a car...
. . . you can’t wait till you drive.
. . . you would go for a ride.
. . . you would take rides in it, naturally.
. . . you would put gas in it and go places.
