Question : "On completing a decade in the industry?"

Answer : " It's been the most amazing journey, if somebody told me that I'll be doing all this ten years ago I would have probably laughed at them. "

Dear Sir

I believe there is a grammar mistake in the answer part. It should have used ".......I would be doing all this ten years........." in place of "......I'll be doing all this ten years.........."

Please correct me if I am wrong. 🙏

Hello, Sundaran—I agree with you "will be doing" should be "would be doing." It would also have been good to add a period after "amazing journey," since "It's been the most amazing journey" is a separate sentence.

Further, it would be good to move "ten years ago" so that it follows "told me," since it does not belong to the clause "I would be doing this." Lastly "told me" should be "had told me" (Type 3 conditional), and "probably" should be moved:

  • It's been the most amazing journey. If someone had told me ten years ago that I'd be doing this, I probably would have laughed at them.
