What tense/structure is this?what is the language function?
The Prime Minister flies tomorrow.
If I'd been earlier,I could have saved him.
Please help me with my homework .
2. If clause type III
had been - past perfect simple
could have saved - future in the past perfect
The second sentence would sound better if you changed the first verb [it`s only an opinion]:
If I had arrived earlier, I could have saved him.
