In a community of Italian people learning English, a user asked:
I've found this sentence in a book, but I hardly understand the used tense: “He have kept that bottled up inside him all these years”
This is how I've answered:
Present perfect, but I would expect "he has".
What I want to imply is that I'm strongly confident that I'm right, therefore I've picked the second conditional. Should I have picked the 3rd one instead? Given the fact that I hadn't the chance to pick anything at all?
