I don't know what you are driving at but the verbs emboldened are correct.

I wasn't referring to his own words in bold text. I was referring to his words I made bold myself in my response.

Some sentence sound great but are wrong cos rules of grammar example concord isn't obeyed

Whenever u’re talking about something that isn’t a reality at the moment, It doesn’t matter whether we are referring to a single person or a group of people subject. As soon as we cross the border between reality and speculation, “were” is the word to be used...

Examples of what I mean:

I was rich and I owned a house at the seaside.(reality: was will be used)
If I were rich, I would have owned a house at the seaside. (hopeful reality i.e non existent at the moment: were will be used)

He was the captain of the team and he chose a different strategy.

If he were captain of the team, he would have chosen a different strategy.

So, for ur above statement:

If it happens that all animals were tamed, domesticated and turned pets, which animal would you love to have as a pet?

Boss, I do commend your usage of English, but from what I have learnt so far; the subject pronoun 'HE' should be followed by a singular verb 'Is' or "Was' as regard to its usage above.


Thank you.

What he is is trying to say is that your words lack punctuations, thereby having an ambiguous meaning.

Maybe you should just stop typing in English? Or just stop typing entirely. This is getting out of hand.

Yes..thats when "HE" is the main subject....

The condition of "IF" existing here has annulled that rule....becos "if" is a condition that is non existent at that time...a future speculation

It's called 'hypothetical obligation' among others.
The structure must include 'if... were ..., ... would ...'
