    He would be in a rage....

    Please check.

    Don't you know that he would be in a rage if he saw her favorite vase had been broken?

    What do you think might be wrong with it?

    The full stop at the end needs changing.

    It requires four people - the speaker, the listener, the male who would be in a rage and a female who has a favorite vase. I'm not sure if you intended this, or if you had pronoun trouble.

    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 mean if it has any grammar mistakes and if the tenses are correct.

    Only you know if you've used the correct tense for what you want to say. The tenses match, if that's what you mean. Look at the question in post #2 and the comments in posts #3 and #4.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
