Please correct these two sentences? Yesterday my favourite team lost but I think if they had been more concentrated they might draw. My sister asked me to go out for dinner and I answered if I will be free I accept the invitation.

1. Yesterday my favourite team lost, but I think if they had concentrated more they might have drawn. This is a standard 3rd conditional construction: If + had + past participle | would/might/should/could + have + past participle 2. Either: My sister asked me to go out for dinner, and I answered that if I'm free I'll accept the invitation. = 1st conditional for a future possibility ---> If + present | will + infinitive My sister asked me to go out for dinner, and I answered that if I was free I'd accept the invitation. = 2nd conditional for a hypothetical situation, or reported speech in the past ---> If + past simple | would + infinitive Why don't you try writing a few more sentences following these formulae to give yourself some practice?
