How many angels visited Mary?

Assalamu alaikum,

Regarding "How many angles visited Mary (p)?"

I have read the response and explanation of all pages. But there is a very
simple explanation, which can be understood from the Qur'an.

The events have taken the following sequences:

Allah (swt) sent the angles to tell Mary (p) about the glad tidings. This
is in verse (3:45).

After the angles left Mary (p) she started wondering and prayed to Allah
(swt) asking Him in the first part of verse (3:47): "O my Lord!, How shall
I have a son when no man has touched me…"

Note: Here she didn't ask the angles but she prayed and asked Allah (swt).
This means that the angles have already gone. If the angles were still
there then why she didn't ask them.?

So, after she prayed and asked Allah(swt), Allah (swt) sent one angle to
Mary (p) to give her His answer in the second part of verse (3:47) "… He
said: So (it will be) for Allah creats what He wills. When He has decreed
something, He says to it only:"Be!"- and it is."

After a period of time Allah (swt) sent his messenger, the angel Gabriel
(p), to grant her a pure child. This is in verse (19:19).

In this time she didn't ask Allah as in verse (3:47), but she asked the
angle Gabriel (p) because he was in front of her and she was afraid from
him: " How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I
unchaste?" ,verse (19:20)

The angle answered her as mentioned in verse (19:21).

Isn't this a simple explanation?
