    Welcome to the forum.

    First, please give the correct information in your profile. Then edit your post to start every new sentence with a capital letter.

    Re: Modal verb or tense

    Are you quite sure that you were born and brought up in the Russian Federation, you now live in Mauritania yet your native language is Arabic?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    OK, well now you need to follow Rover's other advice in post 2 and edit all your posts so that every sentence and every proper noun starts with a capital letter.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Modal verb or tense

    You have not edited post #1 and all the proper nouns in post #5 are uncapitalised.

    Re: Modal verb or tense

    His father's experience did guide him through the darkest days of his life but, until it happened, he could not have (and did not) imagine that that would ever happen.

    Note that we do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
