If-clauses exercise

In type 1 conditional sentences we use a simple present tense in the if-clause and will/can/may + first form of the verb (infinitive) in the result clause.

  • If I have time, I will watch a movie.
  • If it rains, you will get wet.

In the type 2 conditional sentences, we use a simple past tense in the if-clause and would/could/might + infinitive in the result clause.

  • If I had time, I would watch a movie.

In type 3 conditional sentences, we use a past perfect tense in the if-clause and would have + past participle in the result clause.

  • If I had had time, I would have watched a movie.
