Or "Andi is asking for money from his mother".
How do I say: "Andi is asking money for his mother?"
"Andi is asking money for his mother" = Andi meminta uang untuk ibunya.
Why is it wrong?: ANDI ASKS FOR MONEY TO HIS MOTHER
This could be understood as the money would be intended to be given to the mother. But here she asks her mother for some money
So we could say "Andi asks money to his mother"
I mean, we can but it would be ambiguous. While the form mentioned as the right one is clear.
