A. Never happened
B. Never would happen
C. Would happen never
D never would have happened
What is the right tense?
perfect conditional: D
The other choices are
A: The accident never happen.
B: The accident never would happen if the motorist obeyed the speed limit.
C: same as B, but would never happen with a native speaker.
And even B would more likely be "would never happen"
Oops: A (simple declaration) is
The accident never happened.
