    A better thread title would have been Cue and hint as this is what your question is about.

    Here's a hint - cue has more than one meaning!

    Instead of looking up the words "cue" and "hint" in a dictionary which simply gives the equivalent word in your own language, look them up in a standard English dictionary which gives the definitions in English. Then, if you don't understand the difference in definitions in English, post here detailing your difficulties.

    Clue is nearer in meaning to hint. This may be what you need.

    In any case, go to the FrazeIt website, enter cue, clue and hint (separately - not all at once) and you'll find loads of examples of these words used in context.
