Would you diagram PROBABLY as MOST?

There is no way to diagram Most or Probably.  Most you could with a Venn diagram, but you could never diagram it as a sentence.

If most cars are red, does that mean that any given car will probably be red?

Probable = more than 50% likely???

It simultaneously makes perfect sense and makes no sense at all to me.  I am going crazy.
