See if you can”  This commonly used phrase can carry a hidden message. It’s a first cousin to that usually-Red word, “try.”  There’s a subtle yet significant underlying message. It’s easy to see that one can go through the motions about a request like “See if you can…” and quickly decide that “No, I can’t, but it’s okay. I did what you asked.
