    Post [a] possibility

    Dear teachers

    Are these sentences right?

    There is possibility that I marry her.
    There is a possibility I marry her.

    - Do you think you will eventually marry her?
    - It's possibility.

    Thank you

    Please be aware, Offroad, it is not usually our policy to "spoon feed" learners with the answers. Rather, we expect them to try again after being told that they are wrong.

    It seems I'm late. And again, it seems I'll have to be careful in assuming everything people say is right. I asked the question here because I heard 'some people' say exactly as I stated in

    - Do you think you will eventually marry her?
    - It's a possibility.


    Except for the fact that the character 'dropped' the 'a'.

    Re: [a] possibility

    The 'character' could have said 'It's possible'.
