Are these sentences OK:
1. "I'm not capable to do it". OR maybe it's better "I'm not capable of doing it".
2. "I'm incapable of doing a certain thing". "I'm not capable to do a certain thing".
3. "He cannot think ahead more than one hour". (meaning that thinking ahead one hour is all he can do, in contrast to thinking about tomorrow for example).
4. "It stops my mind from wandering into past or future". maybe it should be "the past or the future".
kinda, kind of
1. I can't do it.
2. I am unable to do it.
3. I am incapable of doing it.
