  1. Hello, both instrumental case and по + dative indicate the instrument with which to do something. How are they different? In the first example, can I say по нали́чным и́ли ка́ртой instead? Thanks.

    • Learn Russian Words says:

      Hi Anita,

      You can say “картой” but you can’t say “по наличным”, it just does not work.

      How they are different: in cases where you can say both, they are identical, no difference.
