    Default even if / even though

    I would like to know the difference between ( even if and even though). I was doing a quiz on the topic EVEN of this webpage.i got a sentence "i bought even if / even though it cost more than i could afford to spend". i selected "even if". but i got it wrong.the correct one is "even though".what's the difference?do the both phrasal verbs mean differently?

    Hello, again.

    Well, I'd strongly recommend you consult some online dictionaries, such as
    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    and
    refer - Definition and pronunciation | Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary at OxfordLearnersDictionaries.com

    I hope I can be of some help to you.

    P.S.
    Please be careful about punctuation, capitalization and spacing in your future posts, and please ask unrelated questions in separate threads.
