    Default would, could

    Could anyone give me sites dealing with (would, could, might, may) and conditional statements?

    Thank you again.
    I will ask you questions about conditionals, If I have doubts.
    Is this sentence right?



    [Also, could you give me sites dealing with [Infinitives, finite verbs and non-finite verbs]. I think I should learn side by side infinitives also while learning conditionals.]

    I don't think you need the comma in that sentence, but otherwise i think it's fine. Just don't capitilize "if".

    Finite vs. Non-finite verbs websites:
    Learn English Grammar - Verbs - Finite / Non-Finite
    Exercise on Finite and Nonfinite Verbs @ The Internet Grammar of English

    Can I say,

    I would buy house if I have money.

    I could buy house if I have money.

    I think it would be:
    I would buy (a/the) house if I had money.
    I could buy (a/the house if I had money.
    I'm not 110% sure, but I am 85% sure.

    I suggest that you say questions instead of doubts.
