A man asked a question to his friend, “Why was it the best time for Bilal to be in his home?”
His friend replied, “It would be the best time for Bilal to be in his home because his uncle visited him at that time.”
In what sense is the modal verb would being used above?
Can we replace the would used there with this instead:
It might have been the best time. . . ..
What job does would do in the quoted dialogue above?
