I am trying to get the meaning of the word "grant" straight.
For example, consider the situation described below:
a boy asked his mom if he can have a piece of chocolate cake. The mom, however, gave the boy lemon cake instead even though she had the chocolate cake in the fridge. The boy loved the lemon cake and enjoyed it very much, and he ate the lemon cake until his belly is completely full.
In this situation, would you say the boy's mom "granted" what the boy asked of his mom?
