Speculation in the present

Might this be the correct post to talk about speculation and deduction?

Yes, it is!

Is it possible this is the correct post to talk about speculation and deduction?

No, it isn’t!

You know from now on that, to express speculation, deduction, and make guesses, you have to use modal verbs, and forget about the commonly used (but not so good) expression It’s possible… So have a second look at my slides to revise this grammar point.

Is it OK to judge by appearances? Maybe we shouldn’t, but it’s something all of us do. Do you think that a first impression can be correct? Watch this video in which children speculate about pictures that are shown to them.
