Nb.

Be careful when you use these words. We could use the sentence „you can see” but we would be unlikely to say „you can notice” – even though notice and see can be synonyms. We don't usually use „notice” with modal verbs like „can” to show ability to do something. We might use it with „will”. For example: „looking at the graph, you will notice...” etc.
