    The Use of " Of course"

    Dear Teachers,

    The phrase " of course" can be used in the sentences like " Of course, I can." and " Of course not.".

    But I wonder if it can be used like this " Of course, I can not.".


    Thank you in advance.

    'Of course I can't (cannot)'. This is fine.
