    Default conditional sentences

    Hello,

    Are the following sentences correct?

    If it hadn`t been for them(her,him...or?),i would have been in an awkward position.

    If i knew that you were going to their party i would go with you.
    If i knew that you are going to their party i would go with you.

    If he passed that exam,would you say he was smart?
    If he passed that exam,would you say he is smart?

    All the best.

    These two are a bit weird- do you know or not? If you're talking about the past, use 'If I'd known....Iwould have gone'.
