  9. 9. Second Conditional.<br />If I had a super power, it would be flying<br />Cause Consequence <br />In second conditional sentences the &quot;simple past&quot; <br />form is slightly different from usual in the case of <br />the verb BE. Whatever the subject, the verb form <br />is &quot;were&quot;, not &quot;was&quot;<br />
