I agree that there are other possible answers in English. For example: probably not, possibly not (and other answers indicating the possibility, but not certainty, of a negative response).
Why are too letters used to create the sound [u]? Shouldn't there be just "ו" instead of "או"?
Is "ו" used for O and U in different contexts? Apparently "אולי" sounds like "ulai" but "אוכל" sounds like "ochel".
A vav (ו) is a consonant that can become a vowel when a dot is on the left of it (making it sound u) or on top of it (making it sound oo). In the word אוּלַי the dot (which is not written) is on the left side of it and in the word אוֹכל the dot is on top of it, making the oo sound.
