"Me" is understood, most of the time.

I don't like "understood" translations. It is not 100% me, right? It can also mean "us". Or "him" "her" "them". I might already know the other person's viewpoint, but he/she said something that is obviously not clear to some other people and I ask if he/she might give (them) a good example, since that should settle things. So practically it is "Can you give "the present people" a good example?"

Also possible use case might be in a written test. Bla bla bla evolution. And final point to that: Can you give a good example? I don't think me or us or anything is the direct recipient. Just write down a good example.
