    Re: Probably

    You've been here long enough now - you know what we'll say: What do YOU think?
    If you think there are problems, what do you think is wrong?
    How would you correct the ones that are wrong?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    2, He will probably have gone to home. One goes home, not "to home".
    3, He had probably gone went to New York Yesterday. Your sentence might be right in the right context.
    4, He is probably in New York these days. Hmm, acceptable.

    Re: Probably

    Please use it (probably) with helping verb "HAD" for an example

    We found him in a pool of blood in an alley in a dangerous part of town. We couldn't be certain what had happened to him but we thought he had probably been shot.

    If you think in this way, you will make very slow progress indeed. You can try. If you produce a grammatical utterance, then you know that you have understood a certain pattern of usage. If you make a mistake, we can often point out what has caused it.

    For example, if you understand the use of the past perfect and the meaning of 'probably', you should be able to produce a sentence containing both. If you feel you need to ask us to produce examples without trying yourself, you will never be able to produce an original sentence.

    Is this (or would this be) your response to your English teacher in a classroom? If the teacher said "Jadoon84, please give me a sentence in the past tense, containing the verb "to eat" and the words "breakfast" and "bread" ", would you say "I can't. I don't know how to say it. I can't try. You tell me the answer."?
