    Wouldn't have flown - wouldn't have decide to fly

    Rewrite each situation as a conditional sentence with mixed time frames.


    6. My brother decided to fly to Rio de Janeiro last week because he got a free ticket.

    6. My brother wouldn’t have flown to Rio de Janeiro last week if he hadn’t gotten a free ticket. (Answer Key)

    This is my question: Instead of "Wouldn't have flown" can I put " wouldn't have decide to fly"?

    Yes. It's a better answer (with my correction).

    Re: Wouldn't have flown - wouldn't have decide to fly

    Thank you 5JJ. Just one more thing, I think the book has made a small mistake. You know where?
    If you look at the instruction of the book exercise: "Rewrite each situation as a conditional sentence with mixed time frames."
    You will see that the answer can/is not written in mixed time conditional. The answer key is not a mixed time conditional one.
    Do you agree with me on that?

    Re: Wouldn't have flown - wouldn't have decide to fly

    I don't think it's a particularly useful or clear instruction but there are two times involved - the decision to fly came after the receiving of the ticket.
