    Could she ask the desk clerk to get a taxi? OK.

    Why couldn't the desk clerk send bottled water up?

    Could she get some bottled water at the shops in the lobby?

    Could you tell me why she asked for an extra towel?

    Shall she apply for anything else? Another odd question.

    In fact most of them sound a bit odd.

    They seem to me to be like the answers to one of those often pointless exercises that ask the student to rewrite given sentences using a modal.
