If you find an injured biker, would you know what to do?
Is it OK, if I substitute will for would? If so, will there be a change in meaning?
But 'If you find...' would typically be followed by an instruction: 'If you find an injured biker, phone 999'.
Finding an injured biker is an unlikely event. In an unlikely event, we use a "conditional sentence type 2". In a conditional sentence type 2, you use the simple past tense for the if clause, and would + infinitive for your main clause. IF clause (simple present) + main clause (would + infinitive). If you found an injured biker, what would you do?
Is using 'find' wrong? It would appear so from renard's reply.
