MODALS OF DEDUCTION

 

Modals of deduction are use to speculate about some facts  in the past. We use to talk about how sure or unsure we are about something in the past.

We can use for present deduction:

German must be really happy about his trip to Bogotá.

past deduction:

He must been happy when he was told about his trip to Bogotá.

We can use  a modal verb to talk about a situation when we are using deduction  but we are not expressing a fact .

the form is MODAL + have + past participle (verb 3)

Must have + past participle

When we are quite sure about something, We use ‘must have + past participle’ .
German  must have been very pleased when he  went to Bogotá.
Laura must have lost her phone.   He’s not chatting .
I must have left my mobile at home.  I can’t find it.

Might have/may have/could have + past participle
When we are not sure about something but we think it was possible, We use ‘might have/may have/could have + past participle’ 
The teacher   was supposed to be in class 30 minutes ago but she could have been sick.
She may have said she was coming but I can’t really remember. I wasn’t paying attention.
I might have been in Cali when I was younger but I can’t really remember.

Can’t have + past participle
We use ‘can’t have + past participle’  to talk about events   that we are sure did not happen in the past.
I can’t have left my mobile at home. My mother phoned me when I was coming  to the university in a taxi.  It must be in the car or the classroom.
You can’t have seen Jessica this afternoon. She was in class all the time.
Juan  can’t have liked the  soccer game. She hates sports.
