    If you saw them, you would think that they were best friends.


    "If you saw them, you would think that they were best friends."


    I am wondering what this sentence mean.

    Does it mean that they don't really like each other, but are pretending that they do ?
    or does it mean that it is not likely that you will see them ?

    My teacher said the former is right, but I can't understand why the former is right.


    Thanks for your helps..

    I agree with your teacher. The sentence seems to imply something that is contrary to fact.
