    Sentence

    A.' Have you phoned her?'
    B.'Not yet. I think I could / would phone her tomorrow.'

    Either 'could' or 'would' is right here? Please.

    Re: Sentence

    Could or will. I see no call for using would here.

    Re: Sentence

    'See, she will look nicer with shorter hair.'
    'See, she would look nicer with shorter hair.'

    Both sentences exactly mean the same?


    He was always the first to offer to help.
    He would always be the first to offer to help.

    Both sentences refer to the "help" in the past, not in the present any more, right?

    Please.
