I have seen this sentence on a newspaper. It is about a case in which a husband is worried about his wife cheating on him...". Here is sentence:
"...I love her so much. I honestly thought she was my rock. She is the last person who you would have down as a cheat...."
I did not quite understand the relative clause and am confused about the usage of "would have down" in the sentence, because it does not seem like any other structure of conditionals. And I have never seen such a usage of "WOULD HAVE DOWN".
It seems like conditionals type 3, but then "down" should be a verb. And if it is conditionals type 2, then "to have down" should be a verb, which I don't think is true. So, I am confused.
What is the verb in the sentence? Is it "to have down" or is it "down"?
In other words, what does "would have down" mean here? Is it something like:
1- "If you had come to the wedding, you "WOULD HAVE SEEN" John. ("see" is the verb here. So does "WOULD HAVE DOWN" in the sentence have the same function as "WOULD HAVE SEEN" in this sentence?
2- Or is "DOWN" an noun such as "We WOULD HAVE DINNER together, if you had come to the restaurant yesterday." (So is "WOULD HAVE DOWN" the same as "WOULD HAVE DINNER" in this sentence?
Shortly, what does the sentence mean and is the "WOULD HAVE DOWN" structure a conditionals 2 or a conditionals 3 ?
