    Default Pls check..

    Is this statement correct?
    "please correct me if I were wrong."
    Is it in subjunctive mood?
    thank you so much!

    Yeah,it's a right sentence!
    There is no subjunctive mood in it (correct me if I'm wrong )

    My 2 cents

    There's no need for the subjunctive there:
    Present Please correct me if I am wrong.
    Past Please correct me if I was wrong.
    In both cases, we're dealing with a real possibility, so the subjunctive seems out of place. In the second, the time is past, so it's not a second conditional.

    It's getting clear
    pls check whether the following sentences are correct

    If God close the door, He open a window

    I wish I were there

    sorry for too many questions, I'm really confused in subjunctive

    pls give me some examples..
    Thank you so much!
