    "doesn't make sense "

    Respected,
    I would like you to clarify me.
    Where and how can we use "doesn't make sense ".
    "It makes no sense?" is similar to "doesn't make sense "?


    Is this sentence structure is correct?
    It would be better if you could give some some examples in this regard.
    Please correct me If i am wrong, I appreciate your help.
    Thanks in Advance.

    Dear mcadhu:

    It makes no sense = doesn't make sense = it can't be explained logically or there's an apparent contradiction

    Examples:

    She's been wanting to go out with him for months. Then when he finally asked her, she turned him down. It doesn't make sense!

    The company knows that good customer relations are vital to profits. Yet they keep cutting the budget for customer service to save money. It doesn't make sense!

    Best wishes,

    Petra
