When you express a wish that is not possible, you use conditional verbs which show a hypothetical situation (an imaginary situation that is not possible) or verbs that show desire. Some examples of conditional verbs are:

- could have
- would have
- if (...) I (would have/will/etc.)

Some verbs that show desire:
- I wish
- I would like

If you want to express a situation that is possible, then you can use 'I want':

Ex:
- I want to be a doctor
- I want to run 5km per day
- I want to go on a diet

There are certain situations in which "I want to be a cat" is more natural, like:

A: What do you want to be for Halloween?
B: I want to be a cat.

I'm sorry English is such a difficult language to learn 😅 There are so many rules that aren't always regular.

Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
WASHINGTON — James Comey’s scathing new account of his dealings with President Trump lands at a pivotal time in the Russia investigation that Comey once led as FBI director.

Trump’s Russia legal team appears in disarray and last week’s disclosure of a separate federal investigation into the president’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen so surprised the White House that negotiations with Russia special counsel Robert Mueller for an possible interview with Trump have been effectively placed on hold.

Yet nearly a year after Comey’s dismissal and the appointment of Mueller, who was Comey’s predecessor at the FBI, the Russia investigation has advanced on multiple fronts.

Nineteen people are known to be charged so far. They include 13 Russians, associated with three businesses including an Internet company tied to the Kremlin.

The case represents the most detailed account so far of the effort to undermine the 2016 presidential election, and the actions aimed at boosting the candidacy of then-candidate Trump.
A: “The case” here is referring to the judicial proceedings brought against them.
Q: It depends. But I guess most of the case, you don't have to pay. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: You can say:
It depends. In most cases though, you don’t have to pay.

Or

It depends, but in most cases you don’t have to pay.

I think number 2 sounds more relaxed and natural
Q: In this case, what is “it”?
A: It’s not specified. You can just guess by the theme of the song that it’s their relationship or it means she can tell when anything in general is killing her
Q: I saw A. But I thought it was B. Later it turned out to be A, and I was surprised. In this case, which of the following is correct?

1. I took A for B.
2. I took B for A.
A: I would say "I mistook A for B"
