Hi!

 

Please, could you tell me if the translations below are correct? 

 

       a)            "She doesn't think the show will finish early,but * it might

                     (ela não acha que o show terminará cedo, mas provavelmente terminará).

                                          Might = a remote possibility.

       * ( = might finish). 

    

       b)              "They don't think he moved to Tokyo, but he  *might have.

                         (eles não acham que ele se mudou para Tókio, mas ele provavelmente  

                                                                                                                   se mudou).

 

       * (= might have moved).

 

 

 Thanks,

Armandina
