    Re: Using Correct Sentences

    Welcome, anuragnrg.

    would - Definitions from

    1. past tense and past participle of will.

    2. (used to express the future in past sentences): He said he would go tomorrow.

    3. (used in place of will, to make a statement or form a question less direct or blunt): That would scarcely be fair. Would you be so kind?

    4. (used to express repeated or habitual action in the past): We would visit Grandma every morning up at the farm.

    5. (used to express an intention or inclination): Nutritionists would have us all eat whole grains.

    6. (used to express a wish): Would he were here!

    7. (used to express an uncertainty): It would appear that he is guilty.

    8. (used in conditional sentences to express choice or possibility): They would come if they had the fare. If the temperature were higher, the water would evaporate.

    Hope that helps.

    All the best.
