How to express possibility


How to express possibility using MAY, MIGHT and COULD.

Past
Tinytech Ward may / might / could have learned about Galaxy Tech’s new laptop models when Galaxy Tech’s email servers were hacked.

Present
The engineers of Tinytech Ward may / might / could be studying GT’s plans for the new laptops right this minute!

Future
If TW releases an identical laptop model down the road, GT may / might / could sue TW.

MAY: to say that something is probably going to happen, we use may.

MIGHT / COULD: to say that something may be possible (but we’re not sure), we use might or could.

COULD NOT POSSIBLY: if we believe something is impossible, we use could not possibly.
