‘Had better’ का प्रयोग कैसे किया जाता है (Explained in Hindi)

‘Had better’ में ‘had’ अवास्तविक भूतकाल (unreal past) होता है; वास्तविक tense तो सही में present अथवा future होता है. इसलिए ‘Had better’  के साथ V1 का use होता है; V3 का नहीं  

A) ‘Had better’ का subject यदि 1st Person हो तो हमारा कहने का आशय होता है कि वाक्य में दिया गये कार्य को करना सही रहेगा; जैसे

I had better start taking coaching classes. (= ये अच्छा रहेगा यदि मैं coaching classes में जाना शुरू कर दूं.)

B) ‘Had better’ का subject यदि 2nd Person अथवा 3rd Person हो तो subject में दिए गये व्यक्ति को कोई सलाह (advice) दी जाती है अथवा उसको कोई चेतावनी (warning) दी जाती है; जैसे

He had better leave for the station at once. (= ये जोखिम भरा रहेगा यदि तुरंत वह स्टेशन के लिए नहीं निकला.)

You had better not go out in the open as it’s very hot. (मेरी तुमको सलाह है कि तुम बाहर मत निकलो क्योंकि गर्मी बहुत ज्यादा है.)
