    Default Which is the correct sentence?

    Hi

    Which is the correct sentence?

    Any difference in meaning?

    1) I cannot go out unless I finish my homework first.
    2) I cannot go out unless I have finished my homework first.

    Thank you

    This is a similar situation to the one you asked about here: Re: What’s the difference between these sentences?

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    (1) Mona: Can I go out?

    Mother: Is your homework finished?

    Mona: No, Mommy.

    Mother: I'm sorry, but you cannot go out unless you finish your homework first.

    Mona: OK, Mommy. I'll do my homework now.

    *****

    (2) Joe: Can I go out?

    Father: Sorry, son, but you may not go out unless you have already finished

    your homework, and I don't think you have finished it yet. You never finish things on time.

    Joe: I'm a changed boy, Dad. Look! Here is my finished homework.

    Father: Good job, son. Have fun!
