    [FONT='Arial','sans-serif']I saw this sentence in quizz of conditional.[/FONT]
    [FONT='Arial','sans-serif']I guess it means, like, "If you carry on like this, you should do well."[/FONT]

    Hi there!
    I think the copying & pasting has interfered here but I think I can make out your examples.
    You are correct in both your assumptions.
    "Provided (that)" means "as long as these conditions are met", but basically "if".
    "Suppose" is like "imagine" and sets up a hypothetical situation as "if" does.

    Well done!
