    Re: Should I stay here?

    If you are going to post more and more of these questions, it would make me feel like you were a genuine learner (instead of someone looking for us to their homework) if you wrote what you thought the CORRECT version of each of the INCORRECT answers were.

    If you're just going to take a wild stab at one of the four answers, well, even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then. But if you said "I think the answer is C, but A would be correct if it said "...." then I would know you were really trying.
    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.

    I agree. Unless you start doing that, ushakranthi, I for one will ignore these questions.

    Re: Should I stay here?

    Barb_D makes an excellent point. I occasionally ask questions on a science/math forum. Typically, on these types of forums you do not receive any help unless you show that you have given the issue some thought and/or show the steps you have taken to resolve your question. The bottom line is that only motivated students and learners receive help.

    I joined here yesterday , Iam not such familiar about posting of forums.

    Iam sorry , I think I struggled you all . I never repeat such kind of postings.

    Thank you all for your suggessions. Iam little poor at english but I believe this site is very useful for me.

    When comming to the question: I think the answer is option d (I'd rather you would come with us) because the subject in the statement (Should I stay here?) 'I' questioned himself/herself , there may be a possiblity that he/she don't want to stay there that's why he/she may want to go somewhere that's why he/she may welcomes other persons with him/her.
