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!

Hubo una explosión en una plataforma de petróleo.
Si no hubiera esa explosión, los precios de gasolina estarían más bajos.

  1. ¡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
