Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Hit"

The meaning of "Hit" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does hit the pothole mean?
A: A "pothole" is a literal hole in a road. They are usually caused by some combination of heavy weather, lots of traffic, or a traffic accident. I think the name comes from the holes typically being about the same diameter and depth of a pot.
Thus, to "hit the pothole" means to run over it. Depending on how fast you are going, this can damage your car and shake up the folks inside.
Q: What does That hit the spot. mean?
A: It's usually a phrase for expressing satisfaction with something these days.

Such as, you have a sore throat, and someone makes tea for you, and it helps soothe your throat. You'd say, 'Ahh, that hits the spot' because it helped your throat.
I'd give more examples, but I can't think of any right now. (´△`)
Q: What does hits on truth mean?

Q: What does it's hit or miss mean?
A: It means that can either be good or bad, but it is unpredictable. Like others said, it is up to chance.
I would say it is the same concept as 복불복.
Q: What does "hit me up" /they tried to hit me up for a tip. from $1 - $50. mean?
A: If you "hit me up" it means you are trying to get something (example: money) from me.

In this case, it seems whoever 'they' is referring to tried to get a tip from the person who wrote the statement.

As you probably know, tipping in Western culture (like the US) is important. You are expected to pay a tip for any substantial service that is provided to you (example: serving food at a restaurant, cutting hair, etc.). It is generally considered very rude to not tip or to tip below 15% of the service cost in the US.

If you do not tip, it is possible the person providing the service to you may "hit you up" (ask) for a tip.

here the teacher might say

.

saying that would display that I think their explaination is better.

Q: What is the difference between hitting and batting ?
A: そうですか、hapybrian? :)
Hitting the ball and batting the ball are the same but there are some small differences. For example, one never says "hitting practice," only "batting practice." We will say The batter is up but not The hitter is up. We will say he is batting (not hitting) now to mean someone is up at the plate. But we will say He is batting well and He is hitting well interchangeably. So, yes, the same in meaning but there are some differences in use. と思います。
