Is it more common to use the expression "poser des questions à qn" vs "demander des questions à qn?" or is the latter even used? Thanks!

  • French -

    Usually "to ask someone to do something" = demander à quelqu'un de faire quelque chose. (to ask a favor) "To ask someone for something" = demander quelque chose à quelqu'un. But "to ask a question" = poser une question. And, of course, "to ask some questions" = poser des questions.
