    Conditionals

    I have a question about conditionals, I found an example:
    Did California become an important area because they found gold there?
    Would.....?
    The answer is: Would California have become an important area if they haven't found gold there?
    And I don't understand why I should use: "if they haven't found gold there". Is it incorrect to say: "Would California have become an important area if they hadn't found gold there?"=3rd conditional?

    Welcome to the forum, barnej.

    The answer given is incorrect. Your answer, with 'hadn't' is correct
