There is absolutely no difference. Herkese is to everyone. Herkes is for everyone and they both mean the same thing

What is the difference between "herkese" and "herkesi"? I chose the latter and was wrong :(

I think "herkesi" would be the accusative case (direct object), and "herkese" the dative (indirect object, in this case). Here, the jackets are the direct object, and everybody is the indirect object -- hence, "herkese."

"I love her"="Onu seviyorum" "I buy jacket to her"="Ona ceket alırım" If replace "everyone" with "her", it would be "herkesi seviyorum" and "herkese ceket alırım".

İngilizce gibi bu cümle iki anlam var mı? Yani hem 10 kişi 1 ceket hem de 10 kişi 10 ceket.

satın almak is technically the way to say "buy" but it isn't used commonly and "almak" is understood in almost every context. :)

It is because "almak" itself means "to take". If you want to indicate that you just don't "take" it buy you buy it, then you have to use "satın almak" to show that there's money involved
