Assunto:  possibility vs. probability
 
Mensagem:  once in a while I come across entrance exam questions in which teachers differ "probability" from "possibility" with regards to the idea conveyed by modal verbs, e.g. can, may, might/could etc.

What do you guys think about it? I can't even tell them apart in Portuguese, let alone in English?

thx
