    meaning

    Hi,

    could you please explain the meaning of the following sentence:

    The Police now hope for a result by mere coincidence.

    Does it mean, that the police thinks that only coincidence can help clarify the case?

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka

    Hello Hanka

    That sounds like a good interpretation. In other words, the police will now have to rely on luck.

    All the best,

    MrP
