I am hoping that someone who is good at and likes Spanish grammar can check over my "if-then" (subjunctive-conditional) clauses in present and past. I really want to learn this right--I hope I am starting to catch on but need it checked!

Si no hubiera esa explosión, los precios de gasolina estarían más bajos.

    ¡Ajá! My very most favorite thing - the Subjunctive! It would be far easier if you had numbered the sentences so we both know which one is being discussed!

    estar = to seem; ser is better here #1 = serían

    2. una terrorista has to be female Including "detenida"; a male would be un terrorista. This is important because of the "la" in place of the direct-object pronoun "lo."

    3. Don't forget "personal a" = a mis padres

    I lost count but haber takes the past participle (-do/-to/-cho) NOT the present participle (-ndo ) = creído

    Parece que tiene la idea - sólo unos errores comunes
