Hi Sumesh,

Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson on using the imperfect for hypothetical clauses introduced by si -

No, you can't. That use of imparfait is due to the si-clause and is similar to English. As far as I know, the topic of conditional clauses isn't yet part of the lesson structure on kwiziq.
