Example Question #1 : Conditional Clauses In Spanish

Fill in the blanks

Si yo __________ tú, yo __________ a mi tía. 

Possible Answers:

sea . . . visitaré

soy . . . visito

fuera . . . visitaría

fuera . . . visito

fueras . . . visitaría

Correct answer:

fuera . . . visitaría


Translated, this answer means, "If I were you, I would visit my aunt." Since this is a statement contrary to fact, the past subjunctive is needed. The correct past subjunctive in the 1st person singular of ser is "fuera." The correct tense in the next clause of the sentence is the conditional, which is "visitaría."
