    She + Can + Do...........Why?

    In a positive sentence we use:

    He does his homework everyday.

    Why with the modal can does it then change to DO with he & She?

    He can do his homework everyday if he wants to.

    Many thanks

    Re: She + Can + Do...........Why?

    The infinitive, the basic form of the verb, is 'to do'. When verbs are used in isolation, they are inflected:
    I do
    He does
    They do

    When we include a modal verb, the form is, modal +infinitive
    I can do
    He can do
    they can do
    we can do
