GRAMMAR: SECOND CONDITIONAL EXERCISE

The second conditional is used to talk about unreal, impossible or unlikely situations. Like the other conditionals, the form of the second conditional contains an IF CLAUSE and a MAIN CLAUSE. The verb in the If Clause is always in the simple past tense. When the If Clause uses to be, it takes form were. The Main Clause always uses the modal verb would followed by the base form of the verb.
