I hate feeling left out.

Is this correct?

1. If anyone is going to rule this world, I rather it be me.

2. If anyone is going to rule this world, I rather it would be me.

Which is correct?

There is an apple on the table. What would do? I'd eat it.

For the context above, what sentences could be made?

1. I'd eat if there was an apple.
2. I'd eat if there is an apple.

Q1. Is using was right for the context?
Q2. Present form "is" is not supportive with would, would you still say for sentence 2?

So what does that mean: I wouldn't?

Is he hypothetically telling his future that he will see no pee?

A kid drinks a lot of water, so the question goes:

Q: would you pee on the bed?
A: 1. No I won't.
2. No, I wouldn't.

Is the question using would correct?

What would be the right answer? Are both correct? If so, what does I wouldn't mean here?

Thank you.

1. I knew we weren't going to say it.
2. I knew we wouldn't be going to say it.

Which version is talking about the future point in the past? Both?

Great. Thank you FounDit.

Here's another question based on your theory,
1. It needs a good wash.(for clothing)
2. It needs a good washing

I have asked about this question a long time ago, but it was too complicated combined with some other meanings.

Anyway, here you would probably say a wash, one time. then why do people use the second? Or do they use the both?

Thank you.

Then how killing could have created such meaning as it stands? What difference between simple and gerund form is that killing can mean this?

1. Make a kill
2. Make a killing

What is the meaning of the first?
