    could + be

    Hello,
    I think I have problems with this topic.
    Which sentences are correct?

    Who could be this guy? - seems correct to me
    Who could this guy be?


    Could this sentence be correct?
    - seems correct to me
    Could be this sentence correct?

    Are there some "special" exceptions about "could + be"?

    Thanks!

    Cheers!

    These are correct.

    Who could be this guy? This could be correct if we are asking who could portray the guy, in a film or play etc.

    The "could be correct" in my sentence above, is offering a possibility of correctness. In the same way, this could be correct: (It) Could be (that) this sentence is correct.
