    They could no more...than...

    Hi,
    I have found this in an article: " But they could no more fix the personal damage than they could repair the tree."
    My question: What could they actually do?
    Thanks in advance.
    Best wishes,
    Boguslaw

    Thanks in advance. Unnecessary. Just click 'Thanks' when you get a useful reply.

    They could do neither of those things.

    Without more context, we can't say what they actually could do.
