    conditional sentences

    What is the difference between these two sentences?
    What will you do if you lose your job?
    What would you do if you lost your job?
    I know the conditional sentences type one and two. I mean the meaning.

    Thanks

    Re: conditional sentences

    In the first, there is a real possibility of losing your job. In the second, it's hypothetical.
