Student or Learner
Hello teachers and members,
I am puzzled on using "make of someone"
For instance: "She wanted Bob all for herself, began making demands, but demands were precisely what one didnít make of Bob"
This red words means:
1. She does not understand Bob so she demands him
2. No one could make anything by demanding Bob
Please give me some explanation. Thank you in advance.

"make of" does indeed have the meaning you listed but it has absolutely nothing to do with your original post. Raymott clearly explained how "demands were precisely what one did not make of Bob" meant.
Q. What do you make of Bob?
A. He's lovely. A bit quiet, but generally very nice. That's what I make of Bob.
Q. Have you made any demands of Bob?
A. No! Demands are precisely what one does not make of Bob.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
