Try me, means give me the opportunity to prove that I can do, or be, whatever you want me to.

'thanks in advance' and 'thanks beforehand' Both are the same. but I've never heard the latter used.

Hi Nice Rose,

The simple sentence consists of the following: Subject+Verb+Object. An example is: The monkey (subject) ate (verb) the banana (object). Now we might want to change the emphasis and put the object (banana) at the beginning of the sentence and say: The banana was eaten by the monkey. Now we have made a passive sentence - We have emphasized 'banana' by putting it first and made the subject 'monkey' the 'doer' or agent' by adding the preposition 'by'. We have also changed the verb form. Since the original verb 'ate' is past simple, we use the past form of 'be' together with the past participle form the verb 'eat' (ate) and create a passive construction 'was eaten'.

Sometimes we use the passive when we don't know who the 'doer' or the 'agent' is and we have sentences like: The castle was built in the Middle Ages. The house was completely destroyed during the war.

Hi,

'Try me' just means : give me a break.

But maybe 'try me' is with a very confidence.

Am I right?

Why is it that "Try Me" sounds sarcastic. I hear it in the movies where two people are gonna be fighting. The first one says "I can conquer you." and the other one says "Try me."

Aysel:
Probe me. -Look deep into me and find details about me.
Try me. -Test me to see if I can succeed.
Examine me. -Look over me to find strengths and weaknesses
Practice me. -(Kind of awkward and not used very often)

Helpsavetrees:
"Try me" can have an element of sarcasm to it.

"I will bet that I can run around this building faster than you."
"Try me."

Here "try me" can be interpreted "If you think you're so good, give it a try, but you won't beat me."
