INTRODUCTION

Sometimes, you are not sure you will do something but it is like you do it. That’s is called POSSIBILITIES. If you want to go out and your dad (or teacher) is with you, you must ask your dad to allow you to go out. That’s PERMISSION. 

Possibilities and Permission can both be expressed in negative forms using cannot or may not.
