    what if

    Dear teachers.

    I wonder if there is any difference between (1) and (2).
    1. What if we are wrong?
    2. What if we were wrong?

    Re: what if

    (1) refers to the present possibility of being wrong.
    (2) refers to either the present impossibility of being wrong, or the past possibility of being wrong.
