I cannot differentiate the meaning of I asked a question of her, and I asked a question about her .ChatGPT
Certainly! The phrases “I asked a question of her” and “I asked a question about her” have distinct meanings, and I’ll break them down for you.
- I asked a question of her.
- This means you posed a question directly to her. You wanted her to provide an answer or give you some information. The subject of the question could be about any topic, but you are directing the question to her.
- Example: You see a woman who is an expert on climate change. You approach her and ask, “What do you think about the recent climate initiatives?” In this case, you “asked a question of her.”
- I asked a question about her.
- This means the question you posed was specifically related to her, but you might not be asking her directly. Instead, you could be asking someone else.
- Example: You are speaking to a friend about a woman you both know. You ask, “Do you know if she’s moving to New York?” Here, you “asked a question about her.”
- “Of her” means she is the one you’re asking.
- “About her” means she is the subject of the question.
I hope this clarifies the distinction between the two phrases for you!
