hope i helped and i hope i get the points...PLEASE>>:) lol okay You know, I was originally going to say no, but within explaining my reasoning, I realized that I defined the word "capability" by using the word ability.
..So I'm just going to say they're basically synonymous, but different word forms for different sentences.. ..yes. ♥ capability is when you can do something but you aren't and ability is just when you can do something NO! They are not synomes! Capability is when you have the strenght and or brain power to accomplish something. It DOES not mean you have done it before. EX: Jane obviously had the capability to pass the English entrance exam but was interested in Science. Ability means that you HAVE completed the task, usually with acceptional turnout. EX: Mark easily had the ablility to play piano quite well at a young age. See? capability is the natural ability, skill that makes you able to do sth, especialy sth difficult; ability is state of being able to do sth
