"If" is missing in the translation

Here is another confusing english translation

It's missing the "if" again.

"If I didn't come, I wouldn't see you."
"If I were not to come, I wouldn't see you." (correct but old-fashioned)

Yes, I believe "were I not to come, I would not see you" would also be acceptable, given the words presented to choose from in this exercise

Giiven answer does not include leading IF -- now there's a fresh mistake!

Also there is no need for the final "you"
