Now I'm going to describe a hypothetical situation so I will use second conditional. However, do I always need to attach the if clause to suggest that it's a hypothetical situation? For example:

If I were in this situation, I would let A and B go first because... Then, I [would] let C and D do ....

For the second sentence, is it grammatically correct to use would only without any conditional sentence attached to it?

  • You don't even need the if in the first sentence: were I in this situation, I would let A and B go first because... – Jason Bassford Apr 11 at 20:40
