Hi, today I have one question about verb used in wish and if clause.
A lot of people wish that there are more hours in a day, they can do more things. If a day had 28 hours, they think, "oh I can do a lot of things."
Are the verb in bold correct?
Are the were and the had the past subjuncitve form of the verbs to be and to have? Thanks
Don't forget the comma.Originally Posted by bhaisahab
The comma is not necessary.
Yep. 'were, could, had' Past Subjunctive.
If a sentence starts with the main clause, a comma is not necessary.
I could do a lot of things if a day had 28 hours.
If a day had 28 hours, I could do a lot of things.
I do it if I like it.
If I like it, I do it.
I will pass the exams if I learn.
If I learn, I will pass the exams.
I'll keep writing the sentence this way below
They think,'If a day had 28 hours I could do a lot more things.'
Illiterate or not, I like it.
Okay, then take it or leave it, but don't wonder when other people will keep correcting your sentences.
