On Facebook, Libyans started inviting each other to something like random gift giving event on the occasion of Feb, 17, in Libya. It is a very good idea. Giving a gift to somebody else you don't know is a nice thing to do.
"If I was in Libya, I would've done it."
I saw the conditional statement above on someone else's wall.
Do you think, the statement needs to be corrected?
The person is currently not situated in Libya and apparently won't be in Libya in Feb 17.
The invitation to the event has started already and continuing until Feb 17.
The gift-giving a FUTURE event which is not taking place at the time of speaking.
"I would have done it" refers to the act of participating in the gift-giving event which is again a FUTURE event.
According to the rules of conditional statements demonstrated in the picture below. Which one of the sentences below would you choose?
1- If I am in Libya, I will do it.
2- If I were in Libya, I would do it.
3- If I had been in Libya, I would have done it.
1= expresses what will happen if something else happens.
2= talks about the outcome of a possible event.
3= talks about the hypothetical outcome of an event that did not happen.
I am confused between 1 and 2.
