Choose between; Present Conditional, First Conditional, Second Conditional & Third Conditional.

Okay, I've been having real trouble with this exercise. This is the best I could do & quite frankly, it's a mess! I have no idea what the Present Conditional is, so I assumed it was exactly the same as Zero Conditional. Any feedback/error correction would help me alot. Thanks, Matt.

Zero conditional: If you heat water to 100 degrees C, it boils. (Always true)

1st conditional: If I go to Yokohama, I will visit the Ramen Museum. (Conditionally true)
2nd: If I went...I would
3rd: If I had gone...I would have

These are correct (if you mean that 'present' = 'first'):

4. If only I had treated Yuki better, she wouldn’t have left me. 4. Third
6. If you touch the fire, you’ll get burned. 6. Present
8. If you save money now, you’ll have enough to travel to Spain next month. 8. First
10. If only I had learned to speak Spanish, I would have been able to order beer when I was in Spain last month. 10. Third
12. If you put your hand in the cage, the lion will bite you. 12. First
14. If it rains, I’ll go to the cinema. 14. First
15. If I were you, I’d talk to your girlfriend about it. 15. Second
16. If Martin comes in, will you give me a call? 16. First
17. If you are good to people, then people will be good to you in return. 17. First

FromWalesToJapanI've been having real trouble with this exercise.
Hmm. I can't imagine why. Assuming, as you did, that "present conditional" and "zero conditional" are equivalent:

Present / Zero: IF { present }, { present }
First: IF { present }, WILL ... ('LL)

Second: IF { past }, WOULD ... ('D)

Third: IF ... HAD {pp}, WOULD HAVE ...

All you need to look for is will, would, had, and would have. You don't even have to read and understand the other words in the sentences! What's so difficult about that? Emotion: smile
