Hello,

Would you please tell me if the mixed conditional is correct here?

Were they less rich, they would have been ruined.

Many thanks

    An example that I found seems to match with yours, with the time factor being appropriate.

    If I were rich, I would have bought that Ferrari we saw yesterday.
    But I am not currently rich and that is why I didn't buy the Ferrari yesterday.

    I just have to admit it, Shadow has probably hit the nail on the head. I think that his rendition makes more sense than mine does.
