    Common grammar question

    Hello,

    Can someone tell me which is the correct sentence?

    "Tell me is it delicious after you finish it." OR "Tell me if it is delicious when you finish it."
    "Tell me does it taste good after finishing it." OR "Tell me if it tastes good after finishing it."

    Thanks in advance!

    After you have finished it, tell me if it was delicious.

    I don't disagree with Mike, but I think "After you finish it, tell me if it was delicious" also works.
    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 have moved your next question to a new thread. Please do NOT ask unrelated questions in the same thread. For the third time.
