[QUOTE=Abdul basit jadoon;645490]Is there no one to answer this question. This has been pending for three days.
Kindly clear my concept on the following sentences.
1: They might be invited into the PC hotel.
2: He might be killed here.
3: You might be beaten in the college.
What is the tense of these sentences? What is the role of "might be" and what are the uses of "might be" in English language?
Please teach this point to me as you teach to a childern (in simple words and in detail that could quench my thirst) because I am very new to English.
NOT A TEACHER
(1) Your sentences seem to be passive sentences.
(2) Some people might invite them into the PC Hotel. This is called
an active sentence.
(a) We can change it to a passive sentence:
They might be invited into the PC Hotel (by some people).
(3) Active: I eat an apple. (The sentence tells what I do.)
Passive: An apple is eaten by me. (The sentence tells what happens to the apple.) (NOTE: It is not always necessary to say the words by XXX.)
Some people/someone might kill him here. (Active sentence: tells what
"some people" or "someone" might do.
He might be killed here (by some people/someone). (Passive sentence: tells what might happen to him.)
Passive: You might be beaten in the college (by some people/someone). Passive sentence that tells you what might happen to you.
Try to change it to the active. Then check the answer.
Answer: Some people/ Someone might beat you in the college.
I will visit you tomorrow. = 99% possibility that I will visit you.
I may visit you tomorrow. = 70% (?) possibility.
I might visit you tomorrow. = 40% (?) possibility.
