    Hi, again The French,

    There are two verbs, can is the helping verbs, but tell is the main verb.

    The question is a little ambiguous.

    Bye.

    Re: Which word is the VERB in...

    Almost all of you said that there are two verbs, they are "can" and "tell", but regarding to the question we can only choose one, so there must be only one verb on it.
    So what is the answer, "can" or "tell" ?
