    Default You can't win from me

    Hi teachers,
    1) You can't win from me. Correct?
    2) He is an honest man. Yesterday when playing, he bowled two and said it was over without throwing six balls. Please correct it?
    3) I want to give you two pieces of advice. Correct?
    Many thanks in advance.

    1) You can't win from me. Correct? Do you mean "You can't beat me"?
    2) He is an honest man. Yesterday when playing, he bowled two and said it was over without throwing six balls. Please correct it? How does not telling the truth about the number of balls bowled make him an honest man?
    3) I want to give you two pieces of advice. Correct? It's possible.

    Thank you bhaisahb. I just used 'honest' it to make you understand what I am trying to say.
    So how to say?

    If you mean can you say "He's an honest man", then yes, you can.

    Thank you bhaisahab.

    "You can't win from me." is incorrect, right? I have to use "You can't beat me."
    As you said "I want to give you two pieces of advice." is correct. Do you have a simple sentence with the same meaning?
    The thing I want to know is, "He bowled three balls only and said it was over." OR "He threw three balls." OR "He bowled." I am just confused.

    "He bowled only three balls but said it was an over".
