Conditional mood indicates a contingent situation, or in some circumstances counterfactual (counter to fact) situations. In English, conditionals are often indicated with if.

  1. I wonder if John likes apples.
  2. If Dan comes, I'm leaving
  3. If I hadn't seen him, he would have escaped.
  4. Had I known, I wouldn't have done that.
