      Una pregunta sobre una frase en Lesson 17 Encore:

      In sentence 4, “If I knew what I had to do,” the “what I had to do” is translated as “lo que tenía que hacer”.

      I had come up with “lo que tuviera que hacer”, sticking with the subjunctive, since it’s part of the same “si” phrase.

      Why does it switch back to the indicative?
