2. is it ok to say "can be able" eg i cannot be able to assist you.
3. is there any difference in usage of shall and will

1 A huge area- could you give us examples of where you're not sure?
2 No; it's repetitious.
3 Shall- traditionally used for I/we, though this use is less common nowadays and mostly found in formal language. It is still used in questions, when asking for advice or making a suggestion. It can be used for extra emphasis to show your determination to make someone do something: You shall do it = I will make sure you do. American speakers don't use it much.
4 It's not a standard form, but may be a local variant- is it common in Kenya or is it just your boss?
