Below is the context at issue:
Interviewer: You would like to see a change in our whole approach to aging. You advocate equality – a society for all ages. What (1) would this look like?
Interviewee: This is easy enough to state but achieving it is quite another thing. Simply put, a society for all ages would mean no one (2) would be disadvantaged by their age. The lifelong aging process (3) would have a high public profile... In middle age, people (4) would update their skills, take preventative health measures and plan for the later years.
I know (1) would refers to the future, so does (2) and (3). But, how about (4)? Does that refer to a simple past or repetitive behaviors or both?
I would say it could be both; what would you say?
