Synonyms of "Are" and their differences

Q: Are you ok? ve You are ok? arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Only "are you ok?" Is correct.
Q: half-cocked ve half-assed ve Are them offensive? arasındaki fark nedir?
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.
Q: Are you really going out with him? ve Are you really dating with him? arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "Going out with so and so" may mean two things: going out to hang out or going out on a date. It gives the feeling that the pair is currently seeing each other and are not officially a couple.
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: Are you up for it? ve Are you up to it? arasındaki fark nedir?
A: •"Are you up for it?" means, "Do you want to do it?" or "Are you willing to do it?"

•"Are you up to it?" can also mean something similar but it also implies, "Are you able to do it?" while the other does not.
Q: Are you all right? ve Are you ok? arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Are you alright is a bit more formal but they are basically the same
