    I imagine there are millions of conditional sentences in existence. Perhaps you meant "How many conditional forms exist?" Are you currently studying conditionals? If so, it should be easy for you to find out the answer by looking in a textbook.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: conditional sentences

    Some course books and student grammars list five types, first, second, third, mixed and zero. This is in fact an over-simplification. there are other types.

    I prefer to think of four broad categories, factual, predictive, hypothetical and counterfactual - see the series of articles beginning here: https://www.usingenglish.com/article...english-1.html
