When you use phrases, after that you can use THAT. Examples: I bet you run faster than me. OR I bet that you run faster than me.
MUST We use ‘must’ to say that something is logically necessary, or that we suppose it is certain. Examples: If classroom A is bigger than classroom B, and classroom B is bigger than classroom C, then classroom A must be bigger than classroom C. Mary must have a problem – she keeps crying. Susan must be broken – she sold her car yesterday. There’s the doorbell. It must be Roger.
“CAN" expresses more certainty possibility. Examples: It can be my mother, please answer the call. You can work here. The negative is ‘cannot or can’t’, not must not. No, it can’t be Roger. It’s too early. (NOT…it mustn’t be Roger…) ‘Can’ is used in questions. There’s the phone. Who can it be? CAN
“Could” expresses weaker possibility. Examples: You could go to the park with your cousin. Maria could help you in this area. We could take an extra course. COULD
‘May’ suggests that something is possible. Examples: She may be at home. (perhaps a 50% chance) According with the radio news. It may rain tomorrow. We may find dangerous animals in the jungle. We use MAY + base form of the verb. MAY
MIGHT It is used to express that something is possible, now or in the future. Also it expresses a weaker possibility. Examples: Monkeys might learn to be afraid of things. We might find some insects in this garden. The thief might open the skylight. We use MIGHT + base form of the verb.
