    Mr

    would you please send me the difference between "make" and "do" concerning the usage and certain words used with them?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Yours'

    The short explanation is:

    make = create, manufacture, build something or compel an action/response
    do = perform an action, complete a task

    Sue made a cake.
    John did a good job.

    Sue made John very happy.
    John did a paper on Argentina.
