I find it very difficult to find the right answer. Would you be so kind and help me with this sentence
“ we've got here on time after all“
“yes, but I a)'ve been /b) 'd have been or c) 'd been
In real trouble if you hadn' t been with me.

Thank you for your help

We've got here on time after all.

Yes, but I'd have been in real trouble if you hadn't been with me. :ok: (answer b)

I'd have been.

This is an example of the 3rd conditional

It is used for situations in the past (that didn't happen) and their imaginary results.
