Preguntar Vs Pedir

Both Preguntar and Pedir mean to ask.
Preguntar is to ask a question.
Pedir is to ask for something.

As luck would have it, pedir sounds like pedicure (something you ask for)
and preguntar sounds like pregnant ( a condition you'd be wise to not ask questions about) 

Here is a visual to make my point:

example of pedir
This question is asking FOR something

examples of preguntar
Use Preguntar when asking normal questions.
