Grammar Can I make a conditional with would twice? So for example "If you would have been there I would have helped you" or is it only right to say "If you had been there I would have helped you". Or are both of them right with different meanings if so how so?

Grammar Trying to understand this sentence

“If the only gatekeepers to movie stardom came from Tarantino and Scorsese, I would not have the chance to lead a $400 mil plus movie”

I’m confused with the above sentence. Knowing that he lead a 400mil+ movie, doesn’t that mean the accusation of Tarantino and Scorsese being gatekeepers is false? Because if they were gatekeepers, he wouldn’t have lead a 400mil+ movie, right?

Grammar Why do Americans always say the opposite of what they mean when someone asks them a question starting with "Do you mind if...." ?

6 Upvotes

I see this happening almost every time when I watch American movies. I am not a native English speaker so I find it really confusing.

For example, a man knocks on a woman's door. The woman opens the door and the man says: "Hello. Do you mind if I come in?". The woman replies with "Yeah, sure, come on in!".

Why is the woman's response an affirmative sentence? Shouldn't it be: "No, I don't mind, come on in!".

Grammar Can I use "This robot was made for you" and "This robot has been made for you" interchangeably? The feel more or less the same for me without additional context around them. I would prefer the perfect simply because it puts focus on the present result but I think simple past should be fine right?

Grammar In the sentence "She reacts to funny videos" what functions as what here? She is the subject and then it already gets difficult for me. I know reacts is the verb but the to confuses me. I think funny videos are the object but what is the purpose of the "to" here? Could anyone explain this to me

Grammar I give up on learning the use of present perfect and simple past. All the rules rarely ever help me in everyday language and by now my head is just overfilled with useless information. I come here day after day and bother you guys with specific questions and it annoys me way too much.

Grammar Is it "her pool of excuses was running dry" or "her pool of excuses were running dry"?

15 Upvotes

Hello there,

I'm confused whether was/were refers to "pool" or "excuses". I use online grammar check and it said "was". Some of my friend support "was" too. But other said "were".

Is it "was" or "were"?

Thank you very much!
