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.

Does this make sense to you now?
Q: What is the meaning of this sentence?
Like you get a full audible short sound of agreement to a spoken word to just degenerate into straight mumble type of affirming language.

----For context-----

A: what's a translation to "hai hai hai" when you are nodding to someone else talking?
yes yes yes seems kind of stupid

B: "Ah, yes, mhm" is how I interpreted it
Edit: swapped words around or tried to, but "Yes, ah, mhm" doesn't sound right
My reasoning is basically that each subsequent はい kind of has a different tone to it. I like to imagine in one case you have a very busy business man and he just cannot care less about you when you call in. So every detail you feed him, he grows less and less attentive. Like you get a full audible short sound of agreement to a spoken word to just degenerate into straight mumble type of affirming language.
A: This would be my version of quick, "mumbled" agreement from a businessman or otherwise.

Mhmm = depending on the sound of their voice and their body language they could be really caring and paying attention or not caring at all. It works for all situations.
