Do these two mean the same? (stall for time) "What do you mean?';she was stalling for time." "What do you mean?', she asked to stall for time." **"What do you mean?';she asked to stall for time."

They mean the same thing, but they are not quite right. One better way would be: "What do you mean?" she asked, stalling for time. Also, the second one implies that she is explicitly asked if she could stall for time, not that she was asking a question in order to stall for time.
