Why is "auch" necessary in "Ich k├Ânnte auch zu alt sein".

Ja, ich will auch wissen!

couldn't we say "vielleicht bin ich zu alt"????

I think so, were you told that it was wrong?

"Maybe I am too old" might be a more direct translation, but that doesn't change much about the meaning. I would report it as correct.

Thanks, bro!!! I was confused about the word order in german a little bit...when duolingo didn't accept that....but now everything's in its place!
