Poner vs Poder?
Why is it pones but puedes? Both words start with "po."
This question relates to:Spanish lesson "Conjugate poner in El Presente (present tense)"

There are certain verbs that undergo vowel changes when they are conjugated in the present. These verbs aren't grouped depending on how they are written. It is random verbs. So these two verbs "poner" and "poder" both have stem-changes but different ones:
Poner (to put)
Poder (to be able to)
I hope this helped.
