deciding probability

Is it possible to tell whether something is more or less probable without a context?

e.g the test question which translates as ' write down the address in case you forget'

Hola Thea,

No, without context we can't. But we state in the lesson that we never use El Presente de Subjuntivo after por si/por si acaso, and in this specific question you have two options to choose one: 

Escribe la dirección del hotel, por si ___. 

(Note down the hotel address in case you forget.)

 se te olvide | se te olvida

One is showing the present subjunctive and the other the present indicative, so the only possible correct answer is the second, the indicative.

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos

Gracias Inma. As usual, if I had read thoroughly all would have been clear.

Thank you for that. I should read things more carefully.
