I’m wondering which tense (present or past) to use to describe a hypothetical outcome of an event that might happen.
Example: We have completed Test A, the result is not known yet. Depending on the outcome of Test A, we might or might not need to do a Test B.
Given that we are uncertain if Test B will be needed, but I wanted to talk about the possible outcome of an uncertain events. So if I wanted to say “if Test B turns/turned out bad, we will/would need to do a Test C.
Which tense should I use? I’m thinking Past Tense..
