Conditional Sentences (Zero conditional)
The basic word in conditional sentences is “if”. A conditional sentence always contains two parts, one part to explain a possible situation, and the second part to explain the consequence.
Example: If it rains, they'll get wet. Also, we can switch the two parts of a conditional sentence, therefore “if” is in the second part.
Example: What will Jack do if he misses his plane?

0 – The zero conditional
