Can you please explain to me why this following sentence uses Past Perfect when we have a hypothetical current situation? From what I read when we have sentences with Supposing/Imagine (functioning as conditionals) and they refer to a hypothetical situation for the present it has to be with Past Simple instead?
Here's the sentence:
Imagine we had just been told that a huge meteor was on its way to earth. What would be the best thing to do?
Another example from the same lesson (which is according to what I read) has it in the following way:
What if you were given three wishes by a genie in a bottle? What would you wish for?
In this case the hypothetical current situation is realized with Past Simple.
