Tips & Tricks: Conditional Sentences - Tips & Tricks for Government Exams - Bank Exams

Theory

Conditional sentences or conditional statements or conditional clauses in English grammar are a special type of statement structure which is used to to speculate, what might happen, what could have happened or for what we want would happen. So, to put it simply, Conditional sentences are the ‘Possibility’ or ‘Impossibility’ of a happening. The possibility or impossibility depends on the condition fulfilled or not. Conditional sentences depend on what the speaker presents as ‘Imagination’, ‘Contrary to the fact’, ‘Hypothetical’.
