Hi all GE members and moderator,
When someone wants to ask if my child knows how to tell the time (or tell time), they will ask " Can he/she tell the time?".
Now I want to answer that my child can tell the time, but not all. He just knows to tell something very simple, so can I say " Yes, he can, but just some simple times"? Times must be plural here. Is that correct?
Likewise, if I want to know "how many times" a child can tell, can I say " how many times can she tell?"
