    Question What is the difference between 'the one hand' and 'on the one hand'?

    Dear teachers,
    I'm sorry to bother you, can you tell me what is the difference between 'the one hand' and 'on the one hand'?
    I'll appreciate for your help!
    Yours,
    Ally

    It seems like the one hand doesn't know what the other hand's doing in this case. Unless they're trolling.
