    'Finding more that unlikely...'

    'Finding more than that is unlikely, as tomb robbers looted the pyramid'

    What does ''Finding more than that is unlikely,' mean in this sentence?

    Re: 'Finding more that unlikely...'

    Need more context to give anything beyond a guess, but here goes:

    Order of likelyhood of this "finding" from highest to lowest-
    Definitely, Probably, Maybe, Maybe not, Unlikely, More than unlikely, Definitely not.

    I'm assuming, as I think did J&K that there is a typo in your post and that it's meant to say "more than unlikely", not "more that unlikely" which I can't make any sense of.

    sorry for my typo! The actual sentence is

    'Finding more than that it is unlikely, as tomb robbers looted the pyramid'

    Re: 'Finding more that unlikely...'

    Then emsr2d2 and J&K are correct.

    Finding more than that (which they have already found) is unlikely, as tomb robbers looted the pyramid.

    Have you added another typo?! Now I can't work out why the word "it" is there.
