Synonyms of "Probability" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between in all probability and in all likelihood ?
A: synonyms
Q: What is the difference between probability and possibility ?
A: Probability: If something is likely to happen.
Example: "It's probable." means "It's likely to happen."
But "It's possible." means "It could happen." - however, it's not necessarily likely to happen.
Q: What is the difference between probability and likelihood ?
A: They mean the same
Q: What is the difference between probability and possibility ?
A: I think the key difference is that probability feels more like it is rooted in maths or reality.

For example

"The probability of you guessing the right answer is 50%"
"There is a high probability that she will win"
"The probability of this project succeeding are very high"

It's a more technical sounding word.

Possibility is more abstract or speculative sounding. For example:

"There is a possibility he is still alive"
"I think there is still a possibility that she could be lying"
"The possibilities are endless"

Probability also sounds like the thing you are talking about is more likely to happen, while possibility sounds like it is slightly less likely to happen.

"There is a probability she is lying" vs "there is a possibility she is lying".

The first sentence sounds a bit stronger, like you are more sure the person is lying. If you look at the root words, probable and possible, you'll see probable means that there is a high chance of something happening or being true while possible means that something can happen or be true - but it's not clear how likely that situation is.

The difference seems subtle - sometimes they can be used interchnagabley but most times in casual spoken English one will sound more natural than the other. I think more example sentences will help!

"You know there is a possibility he could visit" vs "You know there is a probability he will visit"

"I think we can possibly finish this before dinner" vs "I think there's a high probability we can finish this before dinner"

"There is a possibility that the meeting may be cancelled" vs "There is a a high probability the meeting will be cancelled"

"I think it is highly possible!" vs "I think it is highly probable!"

Hope that helps!

Translations of "Probability"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? you not only with a more probability get injuries at an accident if you are without your seat belt you can also be fined for not observing this demanding
A: I would say it like this:
You are not only more likely to get injured in an accident if you aren't wearing a seatbelt, but you might also be fined for breaking the law.

strictly grammatically about your text:
- you with a more probability get injuries ❌
You can use this form instead "someone has a higher probability of getting injured". We don't say probability is "more" or "less", we say "higher" or "lower". If you want to use the plural noun "injuries", we can use the verb "to sustain".
Example start "You not only have a higher probability of sustaining injuries in an accident if ...

- at an accident ❌
The only case I think this collocation works in when you mean "at the scene of an accident" or describing someone "looking at an accident". When someone experiences an accident, they are "in an accident" or "have an accident"

- (no commas) ❌
With complicated structures like "you are not only ..., but ...", we need to use commas and other punctutation.

- not observing this demanding ❌
"Demanding" is usually an adjective, not a noun. The term "demand" doesn't work well either here, because a demand is usually from one person to another and doesn't fit something like a general rule that you can be fined for. A better alternative would be requirement, law, rule, or something like that.

The skeleton for your sentence was very good, and the idea comes across clearly in spite of any grammatical mistakes. Good job
