“I’m really stuck on this math problem. Can you give me a hint?”

When something gets stuck, it is caught in one place and unable to move. If you try to go through a too-small space, you can get stuck. Then you can’t go forward or backward! Have you ever gotten a ring stuck on your finger? You can also be mentally stuck, when you can’t make any progress on a problem or keep thinking the same thing over again.
