Should I use "could be, would be, or was"?
I asked my girlfriend to read the schedule so that the chance of our time being stretched could be / would be / was minimized.
I would like to describe the word "stretched" using an example:
I can produce my work perfectly if I have 10 mins to do it, and there're 10 mins for my work in my planning.
However, when i do it, there are 8 mins only.
Therefore, my time is stretched"
Ie, less than can be allocated to a task
[you both are wanting to leave as soon as possible.]
could be sounds correct, it seems to fit in the sentence.
