    If something is wrong

    I need your help. Which one of these sentences is correct? "If something is wrong in the world it may be my fault" "If something is wrong in the world it might be my fault" First one sounds better to me :/

    Re: If something is wrong

    Your question is about the difference between 'may' and 'might'.

    Type may/might in the Google Custom S(earch) box near the top of the page.You will find links to previous discussions of this topic.

    Re: If something is wrong

    The first one could suggest a greater possibility of it being the speaker's fault.
