    Thanks.

    Is "unable" a good term to express "not being able"? Can I use it widely?

    How about the following examples?

    I was unable to arrive on time.

    I was unable to pass the test.

    I was unable to brake in time and the car ended up hitting the tree.

    Thanks.

    Your example sentence (post #1) calls for unable, not *not being able. (Note that, unable means not able.)
