The first round of interviews only really serves to weed out the very weakest of applicants.

Dear all, while looking weed out up in Cambridge Dictionary, I ran into this sentence. Now I am trying to know what is the difference between two sentence, if I write off of ? Thank you.

    For all intents and purposes, the two sentences mean the same thing. Inserting the word "of" might change the syntax of "weakest" (although I really have no idea), but you could say it either way and it wouldn't make a difference.
