    Thanks. :)
    Sorry about that I keep asking the same concept of the sentence formation over and over again, but I am working on it. I'll will try to minimize it and make your time more productive.


    "If life is like that, you wouldn't need a master card." <--incorrect
    The first describes something real and the second describes something imaginary- the two don't go together. I get how the first part is something real, but how do you know that the second part is imaginary?

    "If he kills him, he would go to jail." <--why isn't this incorrect? Doesnt the first describes something real and the second describes something imaginary? How do you know?

    If he kills him, he would go to jail
    Shouldn't one say 'if he kills him, he will go to jail" ?

    You would go to jail if you killed him.
    You will (definitely) go to jail if you kill him.

    He would (definitely) go to jail if he kills him. (Sounds odd but acceptable to my ears.)

    Both are correct. looked is past, look is present, and it expresses a fact.

    Both of them are correct.


    "I use to sleep here." <--What does this mean, I don't really get it?
    "I used to sleep here." <--This means, he was living there before?
    Both of these are correct right?
