    far off

    It is very shocking to learn that racial discrimination still persist in some parts of the world and that too in the present century!!
    The writer has bought out too such heart-wrenching incidencnes in this lesson. But the writer's concluding lines give solace to our hearts. The day is not far off, when man by his rational thinking and behaviour could turn hatred into love and make the world a better place to live in.

    If I change, far off with far and could with can

    What will be the difference in meaning?

    Please explain it.
