    Rephrasing and modals


    Replace the words in blue by the corresponding modal, keeping the same meaning to the sentence. Don't worry ! It's quite easy ...

     

    You have to think carefully about the meaning (or value), the idea that the modal is conveying in the sentence, before 'choosing' which auxiliary will be suitable.
