Hello fellows! Please, tell me, what did the guy mean by asking the question in bold? - I think I'll keep it (said the guy about the watch which was a present to the outher guy) - Any chance you could give the time? (asked another). I don't want to be late for the opening or Metroman museum. Funny, recalling the topic I recently posted about leaving out 'Did' in questions using Past Indefinite I may presume it is 'Is' that missing in the sentence in question, am I right? Should have it been there 'Is there any chance you could give the time?' Thanks in advance!
