I might have thought she __ not able to speak, if I had not heard her singing.
It's just a made-up sentence, please apologize if it doesn't make sense. Anyway, if only if I have to choose between is and were/was, putting aside the other possiblity, what should I put in there?
I'm also requesting the other possibility if there's any or explaining whether it's grammatical or not, but please after telling me which one is better between is and were/was. Thanks in advance.
