Il pense avoir fini ce rapport etc
he thinks he will have finished. Is there a lesson this construction?
This question relates to:French lesson "By + [point in time] = d'ici ..."

the construction is actually very simple and parallels one in English:
Il pense avoir fini ce rapport. -- He thinks to have finished that report. (a bit stilted, admittedly).
penser quelque chose -- to think something. And "something" can also be an infinitive group such as "avoir fini".
-- Chris (not a native speaker).
