    Doubt

    Hello!

    I would like to know what it is expressed in the use of should in the sentence : " with a name like Johnson , how surprised should you be ? "

    does it express possibility, futurity , tc ?

    thanks!

    Re: Doubt

    Should in this context sort of infers "you shouldn't be too surprised, since he/she has a name like Johnson".
