    would or could

    Ted: Wait. Germany, Europe?
    Victoria: It's for two years. I figured I didn't have much of a chance, 'cause they don't let many Americans in, but... I'm in.
    Ted: So, this is the Europe Germany?
    Victoria: What other Germany would it be?

    I am so confused because would have a lot of meanings in English. Can I replace would with could here? And can anyone inform me of any great website which explain the meaning and usage of would well? Thanks.

    In your sentence, you could replace "would" with "could".

    For uses of would, see here: Would
