So if you have any sense at all, avoid Storm Fever. (storm fever is a movie)

Mrs. sue said it's subjunctive and "writing teacher" said it's conditional. Please help me! Thanks!

The subjunctive mood is the verb form used to express a wish, a suggestion, a command, or a condition that is contrary to fact.

What is contrary to fact in the statement?
So if the product of two integers is 35, then the two numbers are prime. Conditional

A, Indicative
B. Subjective

D. imperative
It sounds like it's a or b. Could you please tell me which one

Thank you bobpursley. so which one is it? :)

Conditional (in my opinion)

Mine, too. Normally, the subjunctive is clearly indicated, as in

So if you had any sense at all, you would avoid Storm Fever.
(But, you clearly do not.)

As phrased, it leaves open the possibility that you do have some sense, so based on that condition, you will avoid the movie.

The answer is D

those are the answers

To determine the verb mood used in the sentence, let's break it down:

"So if you have any sense at all, avoid Storm Fever."

In this sentence, the verb used is "avoid." The verb mood is the form of the verb that indicates the attitude or mode in which the action or condition is expressed.

The subjunctive mood is typically used to express doubt, hypothetical situations, desires, or suggestions. It is often characterized by the use of "if," "whether," or certain subjunctive phrases.

The conditional mood is used to express something that is dependent on a condition or a future hypothetical situation. It often follows an "if-then" structure.

In the given sentence, "avoid" is not expressing doubt or uncertainty, but rather a suggestion or recommendation. Therefore, it is in the subjunctive mood.

It's important to note that verb mood can sometimes be subjective and open to interpretation, which may explain the different opinions that Mrs. Sue and the "writing teacher" have given you.

In conclusion, the verb mood used in the sentence is subjunctive.

1: a verb form that shows the manner in which an idea is expressed in a sentence
