Hello, Mr. Gayosa.
(1) I very respectfully suggest that they do not mean the same.
(2) You ask Martha a very simple question: What makes you laugh?
She answers: "Oh, different things make me laugh. Nothing in particular."
So you tell her a joke. She does not laugh.
Then you make an ugly face. She does not laugh.
Next you fall off the chair. She does not laugh.
Finally, you lose your patience. You say:
I have done many things to make you laugh. But you did not laugh.
Would you please tell me what does make you laugh? ( = give me
an idea of what makes you laugh, and then I will do that.)
