    Default offers OR gives

    Hi,

    I am checking an article :

    Which sentence sounds or is better?

    "The introduction offers an explanation for ....."

    "The introduction gives an explanation for ..."

    I would put "gives" but would like another, more expert, opinion.

    Thanks.

    "offers" implies "to suggest" possible solutions.
