1. If you could study in the UK, you sure must have a lot of money
2. If you can study in the UK, you sure must have a lot of money.
Do these both sentences mean , "you're rich, hence you are in the UK for your studies"?
if it's not the case, how should i formulate my sentence?
Is there a difference between can and could in the examples given?
Wouldn't the 'could' sentence be correct if the person had studied in the past?
- Look at my car. Do you like it?
- You must have a lot of money if you could buy this one!
If the person graduated recently, I think I can imagine the speker saying that.
