We use the third conditional to talk about unreal situations in the PAST.
The subordinate clause (if-clause) is always in the PAST PERFECT tense. The main clause in the conditional (would have + participle)
- "If I had known her telephone number, I would have phoned her"
(It means that you didn't have her telephone number and you didn't phone her)
1. Complete the following sentences with the THIRD CONDITIONAL. Use abbreviations for the negative verbs:
   a) If Jane  (not/lose) her job as a sales representative in London, she  (not/move) to Edinburgh.
b) If she  (not/move) to Edinburgh, she  (not/find) a job in a new company.
c) If she  (not/find) a job in the new company, she  (not/meet) Adam.
d) If she  (not/meet) Adam, they  (not/fall) in love.
e) If they  (not/fall) in love, Adam  (not/ask) Jane to marry him.
   f) If Michael's alarm clock  (ring) on time, he  (have) time to have breakfast at home.
g) If he  (have) breakfast and home, he  (feel) more relaxed.
h) If he  (feel) more relaxed, he  (not/drive) so fast.
