Answer and Feedback
Feedback:The condition part of the sentence is called ‘the if clause’, or sometimes ‘the conditional clause’. The result part of the sentence is known as ‘the result clause’, or sometimes ‘the main clause’.For the test sentence:- condition = reading this book;- result = getting a lot of knowledge.;If we talk about the results of a possible future condition, one we think is likely to happen, we use the first conditional.In the first conditional the if clause describes the future but uses the present tense, not ‘will’ or ‘won’t’.Also we can use the present continuous in the if clause.The result clause takes ‘will’ + ‘infinitive without to’ when we are certain that the result will happen if the condition is met. If we're not certain, we can use modal verbs ‘might’ or ‘can’ in the result clause.Thus, the formula of the first conditional is the following:the if-clause (if + Present simple or Present continuous) + the main clause (Future simple or can/might+ infinitive without 'to').For the test sentence:Can I definitely get a lot of knowledge? No. The condition that leads to getting a lot of knowledge is reading this book, but I might not read this book.
