    what I [can] do

    Hi,
    There's the sentence "I'll see what I can do". I wonder if "I'll see what I do" is also possible, please.
    Thanks.

    Thumbs up Re: what I [can] do

    If you say 'I'll see what I do' you are not conveying the same meaning as that of the sentence 'I'll see what I can do'

    'I'll see what I can do' means that you will see what is possible for you to do. Generally, you may use such sentence as a response to a person's request.

    'I'll see what I do' may mean that you, as the speaker, will check your (perhaps habitual) actions.
