It is probable that the prototype cellular motor might be ready for testing around the end of next year.

A. might be ready for testing around the end of next year
B. may be ready for testing about he end of next year
C. might be ready for testing toward next year’s end
Usage of probable and 'might/may' are redundant. Hence, A,B,C are out.

D. will be ready for testing toward the end of next year
Sounds good.
E. should be ready for testing toward the end of next year
'Should' is an obligation and doesn't go well with 'probable' . Hence E is out.

Please explain why may is incorrect in Option B against will

It is probable that the prototype cellular motor might be ready for testing around the end of next year.

A. might be ready for testing around the end of next year
B. may be ready for testing about he end of next year
C. might be ready for testing toward next year’s end
D. will be ready for testing toward the end of next year
E. should be ready for testing toward the end of next year

Correct Answer: D

Explanation:

After the expression ‘it is probable that’ we should use a future tense and not a ‘might’, ‘may’ or ‘should’. Also note that ‘around’ cannot be used to mean ‘approximately’.

Hi,

the reason is redundancy....
MAY talks of uncertainity/likelihood and probable too talks of uncertainity/likelihood.......
so Only one of them should be used
1) It is probable that the prototype cellular motor will be ready for testing around the end of next year.
2) the prototype cellular motor may be ready for testing around the end of next year.
