  20. If the weather was better, we could have had the party outside. (True/False)

Answer 

  1. True
  2. False (The correct form should be “If she were taller, she could be a model.” This is a second conditional sentence referring to an unreal or hypothetical situation, so “were” is used instead of “was.”)
  3. False (The correct form should be “If you had told me, I would have helped you.” This is a third conditional sentence and requires the past perfect tense (“had told”) in the if-clause.)
  4. True
  5. True
  6. True
  7. True
  8. False (The correct form should be “If I knew her number, I would call her.” This is another second conditional sentence, so the correct sequence of tenses is “knew” in the if-clause and “would” in the main clause.)
  9. True
  10. True
  11. False (The correct form should be “If you finish your homework, you can go out to play.” This is the first conditional sentence expressing a possible condition and its probable result. Therefore, the present simple tense “finish” is used in the if-clause.)
  12. False (The correct form should be “If she had gone to bed earlier, she wouldn’t have been so tired.” This is a third conditional sentence, so the verb in the if-clause should be in the past perfect tense “had gone.”)
  13. False (The correct form should be “If it is sunny, we can go to the beach.” This is the first conditional sentence, which deals with a real possibility in the future. The present simple tense “is” should be used in the if-clause.)
  14. True
  15. True
  16. True
  17. True
  18. True
  19. False (The correct form should be “If you ate your vegetables, you would be healthier.” This is a second conditional sentence expressing a hypothetical situation, so the past simple tense “ate” is used in the if-clause.)
  20. False (The correct form should be “If the weather had been better, we could have had the party outside.” This is a third conditional sentence referring to an unreal past condition and its probable past result. The correct tense for the if-clause is the past perfect “had been.”)
