Any suggestions on how to best say -

"I know what..."

like in -
I know what to do.
I know what to say.
I know what to ask.

I speak Connemara Irish, and my input will often reflect that.
I will do an mp3 file on request for short translations.

I suppose context might play a part, but the way I read these statements, the implied word 'should' is left out in English. So something along the lines of one of these, perhaps:

Tá a fhios agam cad is cóir (dom) a dhéanamh.
...is gá (dom)
...is ceart (dom)

Tá a fhios agam céard 'tá le déanamh (agam).

Tuigim...

GRMMMMA Scooby.

That's the same thing Lughaidh said.
It is the English that is ambiguous.
