The bounty description should have been:
Since the question has not been answered officially, I think it would be nice to have an answer for it.
Enter the question of mine:
I am wondering what tense I should use in a noun clause appearing in a conditional sentence.
What I am not sure about:
If she wanted to please me, she would pretend that she were/was/is happy.
If I were you, I would imagine I were/was/am going to pass the exam.
If I were you, I would say that I didn't/don't want to join his team.
But, I am quite sure in some cases, verbs should be in the appropriate tense that can describe the situation.
"If you had the sense of humor, you would enjoy what I am talking about."
If she were here, I would tell her that I like her. (because it is a fact that I like her. So it is like.)
