Hello. I've just noticed that I posted my previous question in the wrong place. Sorry. I'll be grateful if you will answer my questions.
1)English has many synonyms,and sometimes it's quite difficult to choose the correct word. Is it possible to use the words "undeniable", "unquestioning",
"doubtless", "implicit" with "victory" or "win", for example "an unquestioning victory over the Labour Party" or "The Conservatives had an implicit win in the elections"?
2) Is it possible to use "maybe" in the following context: "I thought the teacher maybe graded (had graded?) our papers" or "I thought maybe the teacher had already graded the papers". I think "must have graded" is a better choice, but are the above-given variants OK?
Thank you very much for all your help.

    Are you trying to ask if each of those four words can be used to modify "victory"? They cannot. They are not absolute synonyms.

    2. If "maybe" occurs right after "thought" it'll be fine. Otherwise, no.

    thought = simple past
    had graded = past perfect
    (Those two in that order in the sentence you included are best.)
