Got wrong answer for translating "Do you cook?", but "can" was not available among the words.

"Do you cook?" would be Laver du mad?.

Why can't it be "Do you cook" or "Can you cook"?

    Do you cook, is not accepted and should be. - 17/09/2017

    "Laver du mad" asks whether or not you DO cook, whereas "Kan du lave mad" asks if you are CAPABLE of cooking.

    No. "Laver du mad" is "Do you cook", "Kan du lave mad" is "Can you cook".
