    some/some of

    Is there any difference between "some" and "some of" ?
    E.g : "Ask your teacher some of the questions" vs "Ask your teacher some questions".
    I think the first means that you can only ask some available questions (I mean these questions are definite and are written on book).
    And the second means that you can ask your own questions that you think out.
    Thank you very much !

    Yes, there is a difference, and you have identified it correctly.
    "Some apples are green." This is talking about all apples, or apples in general.
    "Some of the apples are green." This means some specific apples.
