Two verbs. But one of them ( "can") is model verb.

Indeed, the two verbs are can and tell. Interestingly, in English you do not use a infinitive after the "can".

Hi Red5,
What's the point asking to find one if there are two? If this is a kind of English humour I'm too thick to get it. All at sea.:roll:

Well, that way a person has two chances to get it right. ;-)

It's a good question. Only Tdol really knows why he picked that sentence.

(Learners--do you know what "all at sea" means?)
