should the subjunctive be used here.... 'habitions"

Why is it 'they would think' and not 'they will think?

"Croiraient" is the conditional, "they will think" is the future, that would be: "ils croiront que nous habitons dans un château".

Is the singular "il" rejected for this exercise?

Can you give a little more nuance of "would" when they say "they would think"?

Croir is to believe so why not they would believe? I though Penser is to think.
