Synonyms of "Meaning" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between what is the meaning and what does it mean ?
A: They mean exactly the same thing. "What does it mean?" is more common, but both phrases are used, and both sound natural and normal.
Q: What is the difference between I to write "I can't find the meaning" and "I don't find the meaning " ?
A: I can't find the meaning is the proper way to say it.
Q: What is the difference between 'who' (not the meaning of "Who "in the sentence "Who you are.",I mean the another meaning of it.) and 'whose' and 'whom' ?
A: "The girl who leapt through time." The word 'who' shows that the person who 'leapt through time' is 'the girl'. If you just said "The girl leapt through time" that would be past tense. However the girl who leapt through time would be her title or name. (I hope you understand) if you used "whose" it wouldnt make sense "the girl whose leapt through time" because 'whose' is a word which shows that the next part of the sentance belongs to 'the girl'. A sentance with whose in: "whose shoes are these?" (who do these shoes belong to) Lastly, whom has the same meaning of who (in the meaning of who you are talking about) it is not used as much because it sounds very formal. you normally read it in important documents or old stories for example. An example: "whom did he marry?" (Who did he marry?) Please ask if you have aby questions.
Q: What is the difference between meaning and sense ?
A: Meaning its the translation in other language; sense its when something is illogical
Q: What is the difference between meaning of the coordinator OR called exclusive and the one called inclusive ?
A: Exclusive or means that you can have A or B, but you can't have both A and B.
Inclusive or means that you can have A or B, and you can also have both A and B.
