Hello,

Can I put it that is a collocation : to suggest to sb that it is true...invite sb to agree that...
An example from dictionary:
-I put it to you that you are the only person who had motive for the crime.

The meaning is very similar 'to put sth to sb'
-put a question to the vote..
-put a resolution to the meeting

Thanks:
Kati Svaby

Hi,

'I put it to you' is a way of saying: This is what I would like to say to you/This is what I would offer to you as my explanation.
