AnonymousIf he were rich, he would have helped her.
This one is a mixed conditional in form. People often substitute past for past perfect, however, so the speaker's intent may well have been

If he had been rich, he would have helped her.

This happens more frequently with a stative verb in the if-clause.

Hi. Thank you. Are you saying that the sentence I wrote "If he were rich, he would have helped her" is incorrect? I don't think you were saying that, but at the same time I am not completely sure what you were saying about my example sentence. Would you say both of these are correct? Would you say the number 1 sentence is correct if he wasn't rich at the time that he had an opportunity to help her and has not been rich since (till now)? I am not sure about the number 1 sentence being correct predicated upon the fact he has never been rich (even though I thought that might be so). Thank you in advance for your help.

1. If he were rich, he would have helped her.
2. If he had been rich, he would have helped her.

1. If he were rich (at any time), he would have helped her (then).

i think the correct form should be `` If he were rich (at any time), he would help her (then).``

Yes. 'Then' is past but 'would help' is present/future.

Dear Sir / Madam,

I would like to ask one doubt rewarding the following sentence. Can we replace "were not" with " had not" there.

1.My wife would have been promoted if her boss were not a Male chauvinist. (But he was a Male chauvinist.)


Thanking you in advance.
