    Question Modal verbs

    I've got to rewrite some sentences using modal verbs. I've got doubts about some of them. Could anybody check them?

    1 Perhaps the plane arrived late and that's why they're not here.
    1 The plane may have arrived late, and that's why they're not here.

    2 It's possible that he's living in Paris now.
    2 He might be liveng in Paris now.

    3 It's possible that Europe will become one state.
    3 Europe might become one state.
