    Default I know you wouldn't do this if you didn't think it safe

    Hi,

    Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    I know you wouldn't do this if you didn't think it safe.



    I think it should be:

    I know you wouldn't do this if you didn't think it was safe

    Many thanks.

    Not a teacher.

    The first sentence is fine. The "was" is understood by the reader.
