Hi,
are both possible?
- What do you see out your window?
- What can you see out your window?

Again:
- Do you see that truck over there? It's mine. Do you like it?
- Can you see that truck over there? It's mine. Do you like it?

My dictionaries say that "see" is not used in progressive forms. So, is the following ok? It seems continuous forms are common...
- You are locked in the store, can you see out the window? - Yes. - What are you seeing? - There's a lot of police activity...

Thanks Emotion: smile

Hi Kooyeen

Yes, your 'do' and 'can' sentences are normal.
I consider the use of a continuous tense with the verb 'see' to be mainly reserved for special meanings of 'see'.

- Lately he's been seeing apparitions. (unreal things/visual disturbances)
- I've been seeing him for the last 5 months. (seeing = dating)
- Tomorrow we're seeing that new movie. (= Tomorrow we're going to the cinema to see that new movie.)
- Don't worry. I've been seeing to everything in your absence. (phrasal verb = see to)

This is possible, but contrary to the "rule"; "what do you see" is more common.

Thank you.
That means that I can say "I'm seeing a ghost" or "I feel like I'm seeing a ghost" or something like that, right? I really don't think "I'm watching a ghost" or "I'm looking at a ghost" could be ok at all, so it must be "I'm seeing".

And by the way, what about the first part of my post? That is, this:
- What do you see out your window?
- What can you see out your window?

And:
- Do you see that truck over there? It's mine. Do you like it?
- Can you see that truck over there? It's mine. Do you like it?
Are both forms (with do and can) possible?

Great examples, Yankee.
