"यह उसे दो, मुझे नहीं।"

Translation:Give it to him, not me.

July 21, 2018



This sentences uses the contracted oblique pronoun in both parts. I know they are interchangeable but would it sound clumsy to mix the types? उसको with मुझे, or उसे with मुझको ? Do people usually have a preference?


It should be give this to him, not give it to him


Why not मत? Isn't it an imperative? The complete sentence would be: give it to him, do not give it to me. Don't quite get it.
