    Default am really miser regarding my knowledge and therefore I dislike sharing it."

    My respected teachers

    1: "I am really miser regarding my knowledge and therefore I dislike sharing it." Please rephrase this statement by using different words but must have the same meaning.

    2: "Do you want to make your rooster fight against my rooster?" Correct?

    Thanks in advance!

    2-Do you want both of our roosters to fight against each other ?
    (but it fails to convey the idea that it is the other person's rooster that
    must trigger the fight.)

    -Do you want our respective roosters to fight against each other ?
    (same problem as above I presume)

    Our sentence looks grammatically sound to me, albeit slightly clumy.
    Is it the concept of "both" that you're struggling with ?

    I am no teacher.Wait until some qualified scholar confirms those before drawing from it. Hope I've helped
