    Supposition and deduction, unregistered!

    He must be about thirty. I'm supposing this because of his looks, clothes etc. now, but I do not know for sure. Present time.

    He must have been about thirty when he died. I don't know his exact age when he died , but am supposing he was about thirty. Past time.

    I think you can use 'mussen' in a similar way in German!

    Hope this helps!
