    I can change the time.

    What can the sentence "I can change the time," mean?

    Can it mean he/she can travel through time?

    Can it mean he/she can change the time schedule?

    What can it mean?

    Without more context, it is difficult to say what it means. I would guess that it means, --> He or she can change the time on the clock or on a watch.

    Re: I can change the time.

    As nobody can travel through time, the other option must be correct.
