Hi all,

this sentence sounds a bit off and would preferred to rephrase it to something like..

What exactly " a bit off" mean here?

Thanks in advance,

    "a bit off" usually means, in any context, "not quite right". We sometimes even use it to describe people ie:

    A: "Did you see that man running around the park in a woman's dress?"
    B: "Yes, but don't worry about him. Bill's a bit off." (not quite right).
