    I have a question.

    The question is...

    I think Jack _______ a good President for our contury so I decided to vote for him.

    a) will make b) makes c) made d) is making


    The question looks simple and easy, but the more I think, the more complicated the question looks.

    "I think" is a present tense, but "I decided" is a past tense.
    What should the blank filled in with?

    Please help me.

    I would most likely say, "I think Jack _would make_ a good president for our country, so I decided to vote for him."

    Re: I have a question.

    Hi there
    I would say, ....will make ..(future prediction, what is likely to happen)

    also possible are:
    .....would make (imagined future, not as likely)
    .....could make (future possibility, speaker is not so sure though)
    .....might make (even less likelihood)

    not a native speaker or a teacher

    cheers
