Can you give advice/commands in Spanish with the conditional form of deber/tener que?
In this lesson I see:
If you like those earrings, you should buy them.
Si ellos son los responsables, deberían pagar.
If they are responsible, they should pay.
These are advice/commands.
There is also the other lesson "Si [if] followed by present indicative + main clause [command/request/advise]".
What is the point then of this lesson?
By reviewing the different lessons you can see there are a number of ways to give orders and advice:
You can use the imperative - Si te gustan esos pendientes, cómpralos
Or use deber in the Condicional - , Si te gustan esos pendientes deberías comprarlos
Or you can use tener que in the Condicional - Si te gustan esos pendientes tendrías que comprarlos.
