Hi Mr.Mockingbird! Thought somebody who knows more than me will answer you ;)
ok, here what I found for you:

Dual mood choice

There are also many predicates which systematically allow either mood.
a. One class of verbs which allow both the indicative and the subjunctive with differentinterpretation is that of verbs of communication:
agree, tell, say, confess, declare, explain, suggest, inform, point out, write, telephone,convince, persuade, repeat, remark, state, warn, etc.

When they are used with the subjunctive, they are interpreted as exercitive verbs. Sincethey become exercitive verbs, in this use, they observe all the constraints mentioned above forexercitive verbs: The complement clause should denote a volitional act, controlled by an Agent. Ifthere is a direct or indirect object, it is either coreferential with the Agent in the subordinateclause, or at least understood as responsible for fulfilment of the action in the complement clause.These differences are clearly brought out by pairs of examples like the following:

a. I told / convinced Mary i that she i should go to that conferencea'
* I told / convinced Mary i that should be tall.
b. I told / convinced Mary that Paul was right.
c. I told / convinced Mary i that I should go to the conference.
a. I insist that the concert finished at ten (= I claim that it is true that it finished at ten).
b. I insist that the concert should finish at ten (I demand that it should finish at ten)

The adverb can make the sense of the adjective stronger or weaker. A very common way of modyfing adjectives is with the word very: Very bad, very good, very happy. Try to think of some other adverbs that you can use to make an adjective stronger or weaker. Write three sentences including the word difficult.
