Synonyms of "Are" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Are you ok? and You are ok? ?
A: Only "are you ok?" Is correct.
Q: What is the difference between half-cocked and half-assed and Are them offensive? ?
A: Half-cocked means unprepared. Half-assed means poorly done.

Half-cocked is definitely not offensive and refers to the act of cocking a gun. To cock a gun, you pull the hammer back, at which point it is ready to fire when the trigger is pulled. If your gun is half-cocked, you've done a poor job of preparing it to be used.

Half-assed I wouldn't describe as being offensive, but I also probably wouldn't say it in front of my grandmother.

You wouldn't say, "are you dating with so and so." You would say, "are you two dating?" which is asking, "are you two officially a couple?"
Q: What is the difference between Are you up for it? and Are you up to it? ?
