Good morning 😃🌞☀️

English Grammar Rule #4

Don't use could

to talk about something that you succeeded in doing.

Examples

I managed to run 10 km yesterday in under an hour. (NOT I could run 10 km yesterday...)

How many eggs were you able to get? (NOT ...how many eggs could you get?)

    If I use "could" in those sentences they'd express possibility, right?
