If a question ask:
Would you like to be as clever as Leonardo da Vinci? Why or Why not?
The answer to the first Q would be:
Yes, I would. / No, I would not.
The answer to the 2nd Q would be:
This (is or was???) because I (will or would???) know everything without trying.
Should I answer the 2nd question in present tense or past tense?
Thanks very very much for helping again, teachers! :"(
