    Re: difficult sentences

    2)
    Is this the full sentence or only a part of a sentence?

    3)
    I would say it is like this:
    As you have guessed without doubt.

    That means the guy, who has guessed it, did not have any doubt if there could be another way.

    Yes, sentences would be much easier to understand and reply to.

    Not quite. "As you have no doubt guessed..." means "As you have probably guessed", or "As you have almost certainly guessed ..."
    "No doubt" is hyperbolic here. There is some doubt about whether the person has guessed, otherwise there'd be no point mentioning it.

    "As you have no doubt guessed by now, I'm a cop". This means:
    "You've probably guessed by now that I'm a cop but,
    in case you haven't, I'll tell you explicitly that I am".
