: Thanks for reply.
: I still wonder, is "off of" equal to "from" grammatically? Can you give some example, using "off of" please?

"Off of" is synonymous with "from", but it's never grammatically correct, though it's in common enough usage. On that basis, it's impossible to give you a correct English example.
