    Well,it's a modal particle.
    For example, 可能是他吧=Maybe it's him I guess.=可能是他
    希望如此吧= I hope so =希望如此
    I think this modal particle shows your uncertainty and the attitude of indeterminacy toward something


    But sometime it's just a modal particle. Therefore we add this to a sentence just for sounding great.

    吧 is used to make questions
    or
    imperative mood
