    Assignment help .. I apologise for

    Hello ,

    For my English class i have a grammar form task . I am confused on two questions and would like if someone can help ....

    That first one is :

    1. I apologise for not calling you earlier .

    I am confused if this is the present or past .

    The second sentence is :

    2 . The party was great . If i'd had a camera , I'd have taken a lot of photographs .

    I think this is the past perfect conditional because the action is over ...but the person did not have the camera so the conition is IF they had the camera .

    Can someone help explain this to me ?!
    I hope this makes sense !

    Thanks

    "I apologise..." When is this occurring?

    The second sentence is :

    2 . The party was great . If i'd had a camera , I'd have taken a lot of photographs .

    I think this is the past perfect conditional because the action is over ...but the person did not have the camera so the conition is IF they had the camera .
    That sounds reasonable.
    The sentence means "If I had had a camera, I would have taken a lot of photographs."
