20.3.7 deber de as expression of presumption

If not quite sure about something a presumption is often offered.


Well, I'm not quite sure but it should be my car.
Well, how am I supposed to know? I would say it should be his fault.

In Spanish a presumption is expressed with the indicativo of deber even if that sounds in the translation a bit weird.

  deber for presumptions

Debe de ser su coche.
= This shall be his car. (This should be his car, but we are not sure about it)
