# "Probably": level of certainty?

Just looked at the explanation video from PT68.S2.Q15, and in the right answer choice the word "probably" appears.

Can we say that if the word "probably" appears in a LR question, it can mean anything from 1% to 100% certainty (1%, 5%, 15%, 50%, 85%, 100%), or does it mean something like >50%?

Yes! Another way to think about it: probably = probable and for something to be probable, it has to be 50%+
