Can you kindly explain the difference between rate for vs. rate of and where each of these are used.

Example:
Rate for liability insurance has risen -- Q72 OG verbal review edition 2.

Thank You!

Rate of = frequency

Rate for = price

For this example it means to say price of insurance has increased and not frequency.

Please give Kudos if i have helped you understand
