    If

    Please,,would you correct my mistakes in these sentences.

    1. If Bach were alive today, he might have loved rock music.
    2. If Orwell were alive today, he would probably not have liked greedy politicans.

    See above in red. The only mistake in the two numbered sentences was the misspelling of "politicians".

    Note that you might hear "If Bach were alive today, he might love rock music" and "If Orwell were alive today, he probably wouldn't like greedy politicians".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
