This new particular puzzle proposed by the web does not have riddle or optical games at its center this time, but the Italian language; how well do you think you can master our mother tongue?
As you can see in the photo, the reader is asked to conjugate the verb power within the proposed sentence, that is: “I don’t know if Silvia and Luca ____ come with us”. To answer the question correctly, the context must be carefully analyzed; the options given are in any case 4, that is they can, could, can, will be able. Each is conjugated in a particular way and time, but only one is the right one to insert: did you find the answer?
For those in difficulty, let’s try to give a little help by reasoning together: we must conjugate the verb at the right time identify the temporal situation of the sentenceas well as the type of context or the period.
In this case, an uncertainty is expressed about an event which we do not actually know how it will take place; therefore we exclude the imperfect ‘could’because being a time that responds to actions concluded in the past, it cannot be the right one.

At this point, which of the other options is the correct one? Speaking in everyday life, we could also ‘fall’ into using the present, but it is still syntactically incorrect.
The right answer, however, especially in the absence of another period that could serve as the main one, is the future ‘will be able ‘: the expression therefore expresses the uncertainty for an event that will take place in the future.
