Is it possible to use conditional type 2 with an adverb of time and would it change its meaning?

For example:

What would you do if you lost your job?

comparing to:

What would you do if you lost your job next week?

    The inclusion of a temporal adjunct is fine here.

Both are correct: In fact, all of the following are correct.

What would you do if you lost your job?

What would you do if you lost your job next week?

What will you do if you lose your job?

What will you do if you lose your job next week?

  • But "if you lost" implies less probability..something unlikely to happen. They are different Jan 15, 2021 at 16:28
