Hello!

How to say correctly: I can break a brick by my hand or I can break a brick with my hand? Thank you!

"I can break a brick with my hand" would be the normal way to say this.
You could also say "I can break a brick by using my hand", but that would be a relatively clumsy way of expressing it.

Thanks a lot, Grumpy. Have a nice day! :)
