Q: Что значит It’s just you’re raking leaves.?
A: Is this paragraph about how to clean your tongue? Or how to use a tongue scraper?

“Its just you are raking leaves.” That doesn’t make sense. I need more details to figure it out. But, a “rake” is about the size of a broom, but has claw like hand instead of bristle brush at the bottom...and it is used to gather leaves together when they fall from the tree. So, that is called “rake” What you are doing is “raking the leaves.”

The next sentence seems like they are telling you how to use a “tongue scraper” to clean off the white coating on your tongue when you brush your teeth in the morning.
I have one...i think the person telling you how to use a tongue scraper, by saying that “it is like raking leaves.”

Q: Что значит the leaves is turning every shade of red,with gold, brown,and lingering green for contrast.怎么理解,不太懂啊。谢谢!😊?
A: “The leaves _are_”, plural. Otherwise, it’s about the autumn or fall colors of lesves. It’s saying that most of them are turning shades of red (bright red, purplish dark red, pinkish lighter red, orange-ish red, etc.). But some of the leaves are other colors, and some are even still green (lingering means lasting, hanging on, still present, reluctant to leave). The other colors provide contrast: their colors help the reds stand out.
Q: Что значит How to explain"take A leaf out of someone's book"? could you give me an example ???

In US English it is more likely that the word "page" is used instead of "leaf"
Q: Что значит He that leaves the highway to cut short commonly goes about.?
A: "A shortcut often isn't"

In this case, "goes about" probably means "travels around" (which would take longer than the highway)

"To cut short" means "to take a shortcut"

So more directly, it means "if you leave the highway to take a shortcut, you will often take longer"
