    Conditional tenses

    Conditional Tenses

    1. If you listen carefully to the tape, you will hear the sound of a child crying.
    2. If I saw a tiger, I would run for my life.
    3. Hadn't you bought the shares if the price had been lower ?
    4. We will play football on the field if it doesn't rain.
    5. You will strain yourself if you try to lift that box all by yourself.
    6. If there had not been so much publicity about the show, it would not have been so successful.
    7. If I were your mother, I would not let you go.
    8. Many people will be injured if the stage collapses.
    9. If you had driven carefully round the bend, there wouldn't have been an accident.
    10. Wouldn't she have waded across the river if the bridge had collapsed ?

    :) I suppose all are correct

    Thanks in advance
