I never would have guessed - tense question

Post by onlydlonly » Tue Aug 27, 2013 4:55 am

I am trying to figure out the grammar components of the following sentence:

I never would have guessed.

What is the tense?

Is this conditional perfect?

Third conditional but without the condition?

Yes, it is conditional perfect.
