"I would like to finish my presentation by asking you a question."

Je voudrais finir ma présentation ___ une question.

Should it be en vous posant or par vous poser or something else? I think finir par is not correct here because it means "to end up doing", which is not the intended meaning.

You have to choose:

Je voudrais finir ma présentation en vous posant une question.
Je voudrais finir ma présentation par une question.

  • What about in this example? "en appuyer sur le bouton" vs "par appuyer sur le bouton" vs "par le bouton"? Apr 5, 2018 at 5:46
  • @AaronFranke you may use "Je voudrais finir ma présentation en appuyant sur le bouton", but "par appuyer" is not correct, you must use a noun, as "par l'appui sur le bouton rouge" maybe, where "appui" is not a verb but a noun.
