    Question Clauses of condition

    I have this sentence:
    '' If Jack wanted to go on a holiday, he should start saving now."
    I think the mistake in this sentence is '' wanted'' and the way to correct it is replace '' wanted'' with ''wants''. So is this sentence conditional sentence type 1? Am I right? Please tell me if I was wrong. Thank you very much

    Re: Clauses of condition

    Yes, you are right.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
