Devyani; Hey, I wanted to confirm one of my answers. Can you help
Anil: Sure, which one was it?
Devyani: Well, we were supposed to add a suitable preposition in the blank. The question was, 'Bear ____ me for a while.'
Naturally, the answer was "Bear with me for a while." This means that the speaker requests the person to be patient for a while.
Devyani, however, changed the meaning completely with her answer by writing: "Bear chased me for a while."
