Hello everyone,

Is my answer to the following question correct?

Q/ I didn't have enough money. (ability, use "buy everything")

Answer/ I couldn't/wasn't able to buy everything.

By "ability", I mean express "ability".

Is my answer to the following question correct?

Q/ I didn't have enough money. (ability, use "buy everything")

The problem is that it's not a question. It's a statement.


I think what you're doing is presenting an exercise for the students like this:

Fill in the blank with words that mean "I did not have the ability to buy everything":

I didn't have enough money, so ___________________.


You expect the students to fill in the blank in one of these ways:

couldn't buy everything / wasn't able to buy everything
