Student or Learner
Can we use 'be able to + V1' for the current time or must we use 'being able to + V1' instead of it?
1) Why am I not being able to use facebook right now?
2) Why am I not able to use facebook right now?
1) Watch me, Mum.. I can stand on one leg.
2) Watch me, Mum.. I am able stand on one leg.
What is the difference between 2 examples? Can we use the second instead of the first one? Because the happening of using facebook is right now, not something general.

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
