This question is related to the Verb + Result Complement discussed here, but I think it's different.
Here are my instructions*:
Change the following into interrogative sentences (a) with a potential complement and then give negative answers to them (b)
So I feel comfortable with part (a), I think to make a potential complement it's all about 得. Correct me if I'm wrong:
But I struggle with part (b). I know to give a negative Result Complement, we use Verb + 不 + Result Complement. However, the use of 能源动词 "能" is begging to be negated (maybe my instinct is wrong...).
Should I put 不 between 那_来?
...or 不 before 能:
This lesson is teaching me the former, but it feels awkward to leave a "positive" 能 in there...
By the way, what kind of rude person says "No, I cannot bring the book"?! (Just kidding... kinda. Maybe this person is physically incapable of bringing the book?)
