A: "To solicit" is to ask for business. A person who knocks on the front door of a person's house to sell them something is a "solicitor". It's not common to say "solicit for" but it could be used like:

Both these words request information, but "beg" has a sense of desperation behind it. The detective is just doing his job, but the man who was robbed has lost a lot of money and is desperate to get it back.

I hope that helps.


Also, be careful when using "solicit." It has a second meaning, which is to ask for money in exchange for sex.

Things like "I saw him soliciting the neighbours" could potentially be misunderstood!
