  1. Are 如果 rú guǒ and 如 rú interchangeble ?
    For example may I write the last sentence this way :
    rú guǒ yí qiè shùn lì , wǒ men huì tí qián dào dá 。
    如果一 切 顺 利 , 我 们 会 提 前 到 达

    Or are there certain rules ?

    1. Hi Viencit,
      In most case, 如果 and 如 are interchangeble.
      如果一 切 顺 利 , 我 们 会 提 前 到 达。is perfectly correct.
