    Question

    Hi everyone,
    Would you please answer to this question:
    Which choice best fills the blank?

    A: Could you water the trees in the garden?
    B: If it ....... so cold, I ....... water them.
    1) is not/will 2) is not/would 3) wasn't/will 4) weren't/would

    Would you give a reason for the right choice.
    Thanks.

    Re: Question

    4- because it's cold and I am not going to water them- straight second conditional.
