If it is true, I may let you go.

We use the second conditional for events and situations which are unlikely, imaginary or impossible.  What would you do if you were the president of Turkey?  If I flew over the buildings, everybody would be jealous of me.  If I were in your shoes, I would change my mind.  So many things would change if we had 48 hours in a day.

Or  If you don’t struggle to succeed, you cannot reach your goal.  Unless it is sunny and warm, Ashley doesn’t allow her daughter to go out. Or  If it is not sunny and warm, Ashley doesn’t allow her daughter to go out.

(But I didn’t study.)  We use these to talk about events or situations which we would like to be true now.  I wish I had more money. ( I don’t have more money now.)  I wish you were here.
