    Type II Conditionals

    You would succeed if you worked hard.

    I just want to know why at the end of this sentence it is ''hard'' and not ''harder''

    Thanks

    ...if you worked hard. (That means he or she is not working hard but lazy.)
    ...if you worked harder. (That means he or she is working hard but not hard enough.) - a subtle difference.
