Type 2 Conditional Sentence Quiz Questions - Quiz

This quiz has some Type 2 Conditional Sentence Questions. These types of sentences portray a hypothetical event and the results that come from it. Do you know how to write these types of sentences? The quiz below is perfect for helping you get some practice when it comes to writing about hypothetical situations. Give it a try!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If Bill ...... a bike, he ...... it every day.

    • A.

      Had, would ride

    • B.

      Had, rode

    • C.

      Would have, would ride

    Correct Answer
    A. Had, would ride
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had, would ride". This is because the sentence is in the conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation. The use of "had" suggests that Bill possessed a bike in the past, and "would ride" indicates that he would regularly use it.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    If Carol ...... a cat, she ...... it Monty.

    • A.

      Would have, called

    • B.

      Had, would call

    • C.

      Would have, would call

    Correct Answer
    B. Had, would call
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had, would call". This is because the sentence is in the past conditional tense, indicating a hypothetical situation in the past. "Had" is used to show that Carol did not actually have a cat, and "would call" is used to indicate what she would do if she did have a cat.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

     I ...... very happy if I ...... Japanese.

    • A.

      Would be, spoke

    • B.

      Would be, would speak

    • C.

      Were, would speak

    Correct Answer
    A. Would be, spoke
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would be, spoke". In this sentence, the first part is a conditional statement expressing a hypothetical situation ("I would be very happy"). The second part is the result of that hypothetical situation ("if I spoke Japanese"). Therefore, the correct verb forms to use are "would be" and "spoke".

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Joe and Sally ...... Zoe if they ...... her number.

    • A.

      Called, would know

    • B.

      Called, knew

    • C.

      Would call, knew

    Correct Answer
    C. Would call, knew
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "would call, knew". This is because the sentence is in the conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation. The use of "would" in the first blank suggests a future action that Joe and Sally would take, while the use of "knew" in the second blank indicates their prior knowledge of Zoe's number.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If I ...... her some money, she ...... it all at once.

    • A.

      Would give, would spend

    • B.

      Gave, would spend

    • C.

      Would give, spent

    Correct Answer
    B. Gave, would spend
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "gave, would spend." The use of "would" in the second part of the sentence suggests a hypothetical situation in the future. If the speaker were to give her some money, she would spend it all at once. This implies that her spending habits are consistent and predictable.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    He ...... at the Sheraton if he ...... a poor man. (not stay, be)

    • A.

      Wouldn't stay, would be

    • B.

      Didn't stay, were

    • C.

      Wouldn't stay, were

    Correct Answer
    C. Wouldn't stay, were
    Explanation
    In this sentence, the use of "wouldn't stay" indicates a hypothetical or unlikely situation. The verb "stay" is negated to show that he would not choose to stay at the Sheraton. The verb "were" is used to show the unreal or hypothetical condition of him being a poor man. So, the correct answer is "wouldn't stay, were".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

     If I ...... a car, I ...... to work. 

    • A.

      Had, drove

    • B.

      Would have, would drive

    • C.

      Had, would drive

    Correct Answer
    C. Had, would drive
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "had, would drive". This is because the use of "had" indicates a past unreal condition, suggesting that the speaker does not currently have a car. The use of "would drive" suggests a hypothetical future action if the speaker did have a car. Therefore, if the speaker had a car, they would drive it to work.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If you ...... a tiger in the street, what ...... ?

    • A.

      Saw, would you do

    • B.

      'd seen, would you do

    • C.

      Saw, did you do

    Correct Answer
    A. Saw, would you do
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "saw, would you do." This is the correct answer because it follows the correct conditional sentence structure. The first part of the sentence uses the past simple tense "saw" to describe the action of seeing a tiger in the street. The second part of the sentence uses the modal verb "would" to express a hypothetical situation or a conditional action. In this case, it is asking what the person would do if they saw a tiger in the street.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If I ...... stronger, I ...... you to carry the piano.

    • A.

      Am, 'd help

    • B.

      Were, 'd help

    • C.

      'd be, 'd help

    Correct Answer
    B. Were, 'd help
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were, 'd help." This is because the sentence is in the subjunctive mood, which is used to express hypothetical or unreal situations. In this case, the speaker is imagining a situation where they are stronger, and in that hypothetical scenario, they would help the other person carry the piano. The use of "were" instead of "am" or "'d be" indicates that the statement is not true in reality, but rather a hypothetical condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    They ...... stupid if they  ...... him about their secret.

    • A.

      'd be, told

    • B.

      Were, told

    • C.

      'd be, tell

    Correct Answer
    A. 'd be, told
    Explanation
    If the sentence is completed, it would read: "They would be stupid if they told him about their secret." In this sentence, the use of "would be" suggests a hypothetical or conditional situation, indicating that if they were to tell him about their secret, they would be considered stupid. The word "told" is the correct past tense form of the verb "tell" to match the conditional phrasing.
