Conditional Sentences Exercise For Class 8

If clauses or conditional clauses express a condition – something which must happen first so that something else can happen.

There are three types of conditional clauses

  • First conditional / Type 1 conditional
  • Second conditional / Type 2 conditional
  • Third conditional / Type 3 conditional

First conditional

First conditional is used to talk about a real and possible situation. In the first conditional, we use a simple present tense in the if-clause and will/may/can + first form of the verb in the main clause.

  • If you invest your money wisely, you will become rich.

Second conditional

In the second conditional, we use a simple past tense in the if-clause and would/could/might + first form of the verb in the main clause. Second conditional is used to talk about imaginary situations.

  • If you invested your money wisely, you would become rich.

Third conditional

Third conditional is used to talk about purely hypothetical situations. In the third conditional, we use a past perfect tense in the if-clause and would/could/might + have + past participle in the main clause.

  • If you had invested your money wisely, you would have become rich.
