    cannot solve itself

    Hello everyone
    I'd like to ask if I can say like this:

    This problem cannot/will not solve itself.

    The meaning intended is as follows: we must do something about the probllem, we must try to find solutions.

    Re: cannot solve itself

    I am not clear on your question.

    This problem will not solve itself.

    is gramatically correct.


    Do you want to add to the thought?

    This problems needs a solution.

    This problem needs outside resolution.

    An intervention is needed for this problem.

    Thank you very much, susiedqq.
    I just wanted to make sure that the sentence "This problem will not solve itself" is gramatically correct.
