TYPE-2 UNTRUE (CONTRARY TO FACT)IN THE PRESENT OR FUTURE


In type-2 we talk about imaginary situations and in the main clause we speculate about their imaginary consequences so it is called "Imaginary Condition" as well . Although we use past tenses the reference is not to the past time. That is why it is called unreal, untrue past. The most commonly used form is :

IF + SIMPLE PAST, WOULD + V1


Truth =>I don't have enough money now, so I can't lend you any(Present)
Conditional Sentence=>If I had enough money, I would lend you some.
