1. He was excited to hear the news.
2. He was excited that he heard the news.
(Are both the same? Or does #1 mean #2-2 as follows?)
2-2. He was excited that he would hear the news.

3. He was excited to watch the game.
4. He was excited that he watch the game.
5. He was excited that he would watch the game.
(Are the three sentences the same in meaning? Does #3 mean #4 or #5?)

  • English -

    1 and 2 mean the same thing, yes.
    2-2 is not the same ... "would" implies that it's something that might happen in the future ... or might not.

    3 is correct on its own.
    4 is incorrect.
    5 is somewhat correct, but has more of a "possibility" meaning, just like 2-2 above.
