Hi guys... I've got another one.
now I'm wondering about the meaning of "can't see" in the following sentence.
Sara can't see paying so much money for a car.
Now I have the impression that Sara can't imagine herself buying such an expensive car.
please correct me if I'm wrong or if I'm missing something.
"Sara said she couldn't see herself paying so much money for a car."
"I can't see Sara paying so much money for a car."
With 'imagine', you don't need a direct object: "Sara can't imagine paying so much money for a car".
I haven't come across it in BrE either, so it is looking like AmE so far.
