    Which one?

    You are acting like you have a guilty conscience.
    She was barely conscious when the paramedics arrived.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Please remember to write "Thanks", not "thanx". Other learners reading the thread may be confused and think that your spelling is correct English.
