    Set/ Provide an exapmle!

    Is it correct to say:

    Set or provide an example?

    Are there any other verbs?

    Hi,
    What's meant by "example"? A typical case, or a good model?

    ***not a teacher***
    I suppose 'set' is used when it means a model. But, as a typical case you may use, 'give, offer, provide somebody with'.
