"Are you sure you did not see her?"

What should be the ideal response from below choices :

"Yes, if I saw her, I would remember it."

OR

"Yes, if I had seen her, I would remember it."

OR

"Yes, if I had seen her, I would have remembered it."

I think second one is correct but all other options are not looking wrong too.

Some context: My boss's secretory has not come and he is asking me if I had seen her. I think its fairly obvious what I intend to answer,but all the three option are looking similar.So point out the subtle difference to me, if any.

All 3 versions are acceptable English, but the second one, "Yes, if I had seen her, I would remember it" is probably the most natural sounding.

  • could you please tell me differences in these 3 in one or two lines? – Prof-Wiz Aug 28 '19 at 19:26
