have promised or promised
Which one of these sentences sounds more natural and why?
1. Where is the money that you promised to give me before?
2. Where is the money that you have promised to give me before?
Re: have promised or promised
Neither sentence needs "before". It's obvious that the promise was made before the question was asked.
