    Hello Lauren, and welcome.

    This seems to be a homework question. Please note the message at the top of the screen: Please don't ask us to do or correct your homework; this is a place to discuss language.

    If you'd like to discuss this and put your ideas out first, I'm sure other Shakespeare lovers will be glad to join in.

    EDIT: I've merged your two threads.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
