    Re: confusing

    Define (verb); e.g. Could you please define that for me? Give me a definition.
    Definite (adjective); e.g., They gave us a definite answer. They said, "No".
    Specific (adjective); e.g., You should ask a specific question.
    specify (verb); e.g., Specify (i.e, clearly state) the books you took your information from.

    Grammar correction:
    Would you explain it to me? Thanks.

    Hope that helps.
