    I wonder if there is any difference between "If(1)" and "If(2)".

    1. If you need money, I can lend you some.
    2. If scientists can send a man to the moon, why can't they find a cure for the common cold.

    Re: If

    I think there is a difference.

    Sentence 1 is possibility.
    (In case of you need money... - maybe you need it, maybe not)

    Sentence 2 sounds to me like a rhetorical question.
    It is already known they can do it, but why can't they find a cure for the common cold?

    I hope this helps...
