  5. "Cosa succederebbe se fossimo…

"Cosa succederebbe se fossimo arrivati ultimi?"

Translation:What would happen if we arrived last?

June 28, 2013



The perfect subjunctive doesn't make sense to me here, coming after a present conditional verb. It feels like it should be either arriviamo or arriveremmo. Is that simply not how Italian does things?


I think it would be more correct to say "cosa sarebbe successo se fossimo arrivati ultimi" OR "cosa succederebbe se arrivassimo ultimi".


Yes, I think that the sentence is grammatically uncorrect. Your version is the right one
