Lui vs a elle

What's the difference between: Bernard la lui envoie and Bernard l'envoie à elle. Aren't they indicating the same thing (sense)?

Chris W.C1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

Je l'ai envoyé à elle is not good French. The verb asks for an indirect object pronoun, lui, which goes before the verb.

Jim J.C1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor

They are not the same thing because you are wanting to employ a "stressed" pronoun when the exercise is about "direct" and "indirect" usage.

Envoyer (qch) à (qu'un)   --  above "la" is the direct pronoun and "lui" the indirect pronoun.
