1- Would you mind if you opened the window? (This sounds wrong as it simply expresses a request, which means we can not use YOU in requests formed in subjunctive mood)

2- Would you mind if you lost a million pounds at cards? ( This sounds ok, cause it asks for a direct answer in 2nd conditional subjunctive mood"

3-Would you mind if you did my homework? (This sounds sort of between request and yes/no question)

So I reckon; 1 is wrong , 2 is correct, 3 is correct only as a direct question - not as a request)



I just need your confirmation for the usage of the above statements. Am I right or wrong in my estimation?

1. You are right in that this is wrong! You need to say 'Would you mind opening the window' or 'Would you mind if I opened the window'.

2. Yes this is ok.

3) Not quite right for a request. 'Would you mind doing my homework'.

A request no, but here it is possible:

"Would you mind if you did my homework thinking it was your own?·
