Subjunctive vs indicative

Subjunctive vs indicative

>> Bear in mind that this type of hypothetical sentence, also accepts El Pretérito Pluscuamperfecto de Subjuntivo (instead of El Condicional Perfecto). 


Do I understand correctly that both tenses are possible? If so, is there a difference in meaning or are they interchangeable?

Hola Cinzia

Yes, both tenses are correct and interchangeable using these structure:

Yo de ti hubiera aceptado su oferta.

If I were you I'd have accepted their offer.


Yo de ti habría aceptado su oferta.

If I were you I'd have accepted their offer.


There is no difference in meaning and no specific context to use one or the other; it's a question of preference to the speaker.
