Two possible conjugations in Le Conditionnel Passé?

Hello, when I look into the conjugation tables (from Le Figaro web page) I see two possible conjugations patterns for Le Conditionnel Passé the one I used to j'aurais dû tu aurais dû il aurait dû nous aurions dû vous auriez dû ils auraient dû And this one j'eusse dû tu eusses dû il eût dû nous eussions dû vous eussiez dû ils eussent dû Are this forms equivalent? Regards, Oleh

Bonjour Oleg ! No, they're not interchangeable, as the second form is used only in very formal writing, and is extremely rare nowadays. I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
