    It can be considered or could be considered - difference?

    Hello,

    I am doing homework and I have to cite some lines from books and essays. After citing them, I need to deduce from those lines. But I feel confused about whether I should use 'can' or 'could/might.' For example:

    ''........................................'' (X, p.X)

    From the line above, it can be deduced that . . . - it can be inferred that . . . - it can be considered that . . . - etc.

    Can I use 'can' or should I use 'could/might' instead of it?

    Thanks.
