Some examples:

1b) "It would have been better if I hadn't gone into the forest at night."
1c) I would have been better off not going into the forest at night."


2. context: What had gone wrong in his life?
2a) "He should have finished his degree."
2b) "It would have been better if he had finished his degree."
2c) "He would have been better off finishing his degree."
