Dijeron que nos pagarían las horas extra trabajadas cuando ________ el mes.

They said they'd pay our overtime when it was the end of the month.

terminase

terminaba

terminó

termine


I don't understand why this sentence fits this lesson. Surely there cannot be much uncertainty that there will be an end to the month. Wouldn't this make more sense in the indicative?

Hola R

I checked the question and the lesson. There was a bit of information missing from the lesson. Sometimes it is not to do with more or less uncertainty but it is simply something that conveys a future action and the fact that we start the sentence with El Conditional makes us want the Imperfecto de Subjuntivo in the clause. That has been added to the lesson, and a hint has been added to this question to reflect this.

Gracias y saludos
