Today I saw two sentences which confused me. They are
1: Can you anwser my question?
2: Could you anwser my question?
What is the difference between "can" & "could" here.
When "Can" and when "Could" will be used?
Kindly clear its uses also.

Can is used to refer to ability of doing an action.
Can you play basketball?
Could is more like of a request/plead.
Could you hand that glass for me?
In your given sentences, I would choose 1.
