I was wondering if you let me know in which one of the self-made sentences bellow, the bold part sounds redundant:
Could you please exemplify it with an example?
Could you please illustrate it with an example?
Based on the definitions in the most of the online dictionaries I visited , both of the verbs above mean to clarify or explain something using examples. But:
1) I'm not sure if they can always be freely exchanged.
2) Meanwhile, I don't know if they require the object "example" at all or it is implied by itself.
