    Unhappy IF CONDITIONALS!!

    Dear teachers,

    I am having really difficulity to understand the IF conditionals, especially mixed type. If you could help me with the follOwing contexts and with the right answers, I would be more than happy.

    Here are the questions:

    1- Context: Somebody has a terrible flu and stays at home. Her friend calls her and asked her if she wants to go to the movie with her .And the ill person says:

    a. If I wasnít ill, I would come with you.
    b. If I hadnít been ill, I would come with you.
    c. If I hadnít been ill, I would have come with you.
    d. If I wasnít ill, I would have come with you.

    2.Context: Someone is visiting his friends in London. He can only stay there for 3 days. Last day, He is saying to the relatives:

    a. If I didnít have an important appointment in Holland, I would stay in London two more days.
    b. If I didnít have an important appointment in Holland, I would have stayed in London two more days.
    c. If I hadnít had an important business appointment in Holland, I would stay in London two more days.
    d. If I hadnít had an important business appointment in Holland, I would have stayed in London two more days.

    3.
    Context: Someone is visiting his relatives in London. He can only stay there for 3 days. Last day, He is saying to his relatives:

    a. I wish, I would have stayed in London two more days.
    b. I wish, I would stay in London two more days.

    * In the same context, can we also use the following type:

    a. I wish, I stayed in London two more days.
    b. I wish, I had stayed in London two more days.

    5. Question: Which one is correct?
    I wish, I had graduated from the English Faculty

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: IF CONDITIONALS!!

    Hi.
    Please give your answers first. After you've done that, somebody will check them.
    To learn more about mixed conditionals, try looking at ENGLISH PAGE - Mixed Conditionals or type 'mixed conditionals' in the search box to find some helpful threads.

    PS. Your sentences with "I wish" don't need commas.
