    from and out of

    Dear teachers,

    Please read the sentence:

    For someone born and brought up in a big city, a tap is simply something that water comes from.

    My question is: can I use 'out of ' instead of 'from'? If I can, do they bear the same meaning? If I can't could you please explain why?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Yes, and they both mean the same thing.
