    No : Try saying

    You can see that wonderful boy wants to do something

    indicating that it is a specific boy who intends to carry out some good action

    Re: help correct my sentence

    NO. You can say "You can see that that wonderful boy wants to do something." Although I am repeating the "that", it is okay since it is used as a demonstrative pronoun. The first that tells what you can see.

    Not entirely.

    The context of your sentence requires that you use "the" or "that". So you should say "You can see/tell that wonderful boy wants to do something".
