Correct this sentence. Suppose Nicole actually was in charge of the universe, as she claims.

    Hi, dawsonbaer. I believe we have another case of the subjunctive. Because you're supposing--proposing something hypothetical--you'd want to use "were" instead of "was." So the sentence should read: "Suppose Nicole actually were in charge of the universe, as she claims."

    The subjunctive can be very annoying in English, since it just doesn't come up that often. I think RedwoodGirl gave a fantastic answer here: http://openstudy.com/users/keketsu#/updates/4f410fede4b0534c53cc48ff
