    what's the difference between...

    What's the difference between "How beautiful it is" and "How beautiful it can be"?

    A. How beautiful it is.
    B. How beautiful it can be.

    the present tense(A) and the future tense(B)?..

    I don't know. X(

    Please answer that..

    NOT A TEACHER.


    A is beautiful, but B is not beautiful (yet), but can be beautiful, perhaps after a makeover (if it's a woman - joke ;)

    How beautiful it is! (It is beautiful.)

    how beautiful it can be (We don't know how beautiful it can be, or we might know, but in any case that expression is incomplete.)
