    Present Un real conditional

    I am confused with the degrees of adjectives used in the following sentences. I found these sentences as the examples of Present Unreal conditional sentences.

    1, If she were rich she would buy a BMW car. (1st degree of adjective i.e. rich)
    2, If I were taller I would play basketball. (Comparative degree of adjective i.e. taller)

    Please teach me the rules to clear my confusion.

    Regards

    "If I were tall I would play basketball."
    "If I were taller I would play basketball."
    "If she were rich she would buy a BMW.
    "If she were richer she would buy a BMW."
    All of the above are correct.
