Can you use "possible" without "it's" in a sentence like: "So you think it's the White House. Possible..." Or do you have to say: "So you think it's the White House. Possibly...."

    Yes, in colloquial speech a single word can be used to stand for a brief sentence, if that's what you were asking (it's unclear because of your use of suspension points). – Kate Bunting Sep 18 at 8:07
  • "That is possible." – nnnnnn Sep 18 at 8:10
  • That's indeed what I was asking. Thanks for your reply! – user361965 Sep 18 at 8:44
  • @KateBunting You can make that comment an answer. In general please don't write answers in comments. – DJClayworth Sep 18 at 14:18

Yes, in colloquial speech a single word may be made to stand for a short sentence such as 'It is possible'.

  • Please could you elaborate? This is in the low-quality review queue. – marcellothearcane Sep 18 at 16:08
  • I only made my comment into an answer because @DJClayworth asked me to. – Kate Bunting Sep 19 at 8:15
  • Oh, I didn't see that from the queue. Also, not my downvote. I guess an example from the wild would make it better – marcellothearcane Sep 19 at 10:41
