てもいい grammar 皆さん、こんにちは! I would like to know, whether the following sentence: 何をしてもいいですか。 could mean both "What should I do?" and "Can I do everything I want?"? My second question would be pretty similar to the first one, that is whether 何度挑戦してもいいですか。could mean both "How many attempts do I have?" and "Is it ok if I try as many times as I want?"? 教えてくださいませんか?

”What should I do ?”は、”何をすればいいですか”とも言います。

"何をしてもいいですか。" is "Can I do everything I want?". "What should I do ?" is "何をするべきですか。" , so they are different meaning, in my opinion. 何度挑戦してもいいですか。is "Is it ok if I try as many times as I want?"?. "How many attempts do I have?" is "何回、挑戦できますか?" , so it is a just question to ask "How many times ---?" I hope it helps your study!
