Apart from Bhai's point, I want to let you guys know that "hopefully" is a very formal word and is generally not used for better writing. This information is from an authentic source.

"It is hoped" that we will need to learn such sick rules only to please the Evil Testing Syndicate(as MATT would describe) or rather PVUE
