In my office I wrote an application, part of which reads
'it is better if you take a look at my loan papers'
This happened twice. are the sentences incorrect? I could have written
'It will be better/it would be better
'if you take a look at my loan papers'
which of the three sentences are correct and appropriate? or I could have written
'it would have been better if you had taken a look at my loan papers"
But There was no uproar.
I think there is no need to change the original sentence-'It is better if you take a look at my loan papers" THE TELEGRAPH daily English news paper of KOLKATA, INDIA published two articles not very long ago which endorses my view. If we use colloquial English in construction of sentences, it is down voted because , in such sentences inappropriate tagsGrammar Grammatically , were used, but not down voted in tags like Usage I request you reconsider my this very question, which is edited.Many non- native speakers translate their own language into English, if they have to speak or write hastily.
