    had I seen/ were you to do

    Hi,
    Does anyone know the grammar rules to make the more formal conditionals?
    and I would like to know if I can apply this rule to the the zero, first , second and third conditionals.
    Thanks so much for the help.

    1st - If you becomes Should you
    2nd - If you becomes If you were to or were you to
    3rd - If you had becomes Had you

    Also, with the first, you'll see 'Should you happen to'. The possibility is reduced in bith the first and second, but not the third.
