Dear teachers,

Of the following two sentences, which one is normal and polite?

1. By any chance, might you be free on Wednesday?

2. By any chance, will you be free on Wednesday?

Thank you very much.


Both are polite.

I seldom say or hear #1.



Hello, Clive!

Thank you very much for answering my question. I am very sorry for the late reply.

How do you mean when you said #1 is seldom heard or said? Native speakers won't say that?

Thanks again, Clive
