Dear Minoo, 

During my test on conditionals, one of the answer is shown as wrong one, could you tell me the reason, please? 

Attached is it's screenshot

Hello Hari,

I think it's simply because you didn't put a question mark at the end of the sentence! Otherwise, I see nothing wrong with your answer.

Dear Minoo, 

Actually I couldn't put question mark as I can only fill in the Blank.

Will it be right if I use the word 'will'  instead of 'would?

Regards, 

Hari

Yes, 'will' is definitely correct (Conditional 1), but as this is a request, 'would' and 'could' are o.k. too. I'll ask Tom to add those as alternatives, and my apologies for the full stop!! He'll correct that too.

 Thanks for pointing this out, Hari.

Hello again, Hari.

Tom has brought to my attention that I wanted the answer to be 'remind him to ......, please.' i.e. an instruction rather than a request. Therefore, he's going to leave it as it is, but your request formulation is also valid as long as you end your sentence with a question mark.
