    The correct answer is "were" because it is the correct form of the verb "to be" in the subjunctive mood. The sentence is expressing a hypothetical situation, indicating that David is not actually rich. In this case, "were" is used instead of "was" to show the unreal condition.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Had the money." This answer is correct because the sentence is in the conditional form, indicating a hypothetical situation. The phrase "if I had the money" suggests that the person does not currently have the money but would consider getting a new car if they did. The other options, "got the money" and "has the money," are grammatically incorrect verb forms in this context.

The phrase "I don't see" implies that the speaker is not expecting to have a visual encounter with the person, indicating that they will make a phone call instead.
