    About conditional sentence

    I have a question about conditional sentences.
    - If I ___________ (not see) it with my own eyes, I _____________ (not believe) it.
    A- hadn't seen - wouldn't have believed
    B- don't see - won't believe
    The key is A, but I think B is also all right. Am I wrong, teachers?

    Re: About conditional sentence

    I think B is possible as the first conditional.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: About conditional sentence

    As there is no clear indication of the time, B) works for me too. The second conditional could also be used. The question is lacking a time element to restrict the meaning and point to a single correct answer.
