    Could someone explain me how to use the adjective

    Could someone explain me how to use the adjective "likely" and what it means in each cases?
    When do we use this word?
    Thanks!

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    1. People who post short, clear questions are likely to receive faster answers than people who post long and
    unclear questions.

    2. It is likely that people who ask for answers to homework will find that they are gently reminded that they must first try to answer the questions themselves.

    3. Teacher: Where is your homework?

    Tom: Sorry, teacher. My dog ate my homework.

    Teacher: That's a likely story! (= I do not believe you)

    4. Some people believe that the current president will likely ( = probably) be reelected in November.
