    Is it true this right?

    "I hope I could do the same for you."

    Thanks.
    I prefer "I hope I can return the favor [one day]".

    Please note:
    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Put the words/phrases you are querying in quotation marks to make it clear what you are asking about.
    - We don't ask "Is it true?" in this context. We say "Is it right?" or "Is this right?" "Right" means "correct".
    - For your information, I continued to use your American spelling of "favor" but in British English, it's "favour".
