Hi All,

I have this question. What is the grammar structure and the meaning of the following sentence.

” If I would have done that, the results would have been catastrophic”

obviously it cannot be third conditional grammar structure, right?

Why not use, ” If I had done that, the results would have been catastrophic”?

Do they have different meanings?



” If I had done that, the results would have been catastrophic”?

Thank you for the reply. I really appreciate it.
