    Thanks a lot. I try it again.

    5. If it doesn't rain, we could go swimming.
    8. If you found a skeleton in the cellar, wouldn't talk about it.
    11. If you left your purse lying around, it would be stolen.
    12. We would must to walk, if we ran out of petrol.
    14. I would have answered the phone if I had known it was you.

    To 5: He/she/it + 's' . Here I'm not sure if I have to use 'conditional II', but I think, that 'conditional I' also work here.
    To 8: I think that conditional II works here. What is wrong by this sentence?
    To 12: I don't know what I thought by this embarrassing mistake
    To 14: I think that conditional III works here, but the exercise was only of conditional I+II. What do you think?
