    If you could use search you got an answer Or If You Did Use Search you got an answer.

    Which of the phrases in my title is correct?

    That's Affirmative sentence not interrogative.

    Neither is correct. Can you phrase the statement with different words to help us understand what you are trying to say?

    If you had used Search, you would have got an answer.
