Without additional context, what is the meaning, or possible meanings of:
I know 聞く can mean both to hear/listen or to ask. Which interpretation is correct:
- X is heard by Y
- Y is heard by X
- Y was asked (a question) by X
Or are multiple options are possible? I think (3) is at least possible, but I'm not sure if this statement is potentially ambiguous. My gut feeling is that を plays an important role here. Can anyone help shed more concrete understanding?
