A: It would suggest he is happy with his job.
(“It” in the sentence doesn’t refer to something specific. It refers to the existence of the situation.)

B: I don’t think we should go to Jack’s birthday party. Jeff is our best friend and he hates Jack. Going to Jack’s party would suggest Jeff is not our best friend.

My questions are as follows,

Is would in sentence A tentative form of “it suggests”?
Is would in sentence B conditional? I know the sentences are kind of weird but I had to make it up.


Please disregard it.
