Hi Sumesh,

Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson on using the imperfect for hypothetical clauses introduced by si -

https://french.kwiziq.com/revision/grammar/l-imparfait-usage-in-hypothetical-clauses-introduced-by-si-if-followed-by-le-conditionnel-present

Hope this helps!

 

No, you can't. That use of imparfait is due to the si-clause and is similar to English. As far as I know, the topic of conditional clauses isn't yet part of the lesson structure on kwiziq.

If it rained today, would we still go out? -- S'il pleuvait aujourd'hui, on sortirait quand même?
