    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 - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
