    "If he went to the market, he'll be having fruits now."

    "If he went to the market, he'll be having fruits now."
    "If he went to the market, he'll have fruits now.
    Are the above sentence correct? Kindly tell me a natural way of telling this. [Intention is to say that if he went to the market, he must have bought fruits].

    Re: "If he went to the market, he'll be having fruits now."

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say. If you think he bought fruit, you could say If he went to the market, he probably has some fruit now.

    Write Please tell me a natural way to phrase this. I used the indefinite article because there are usually many natural ways to say something.
