    Hi,
    Don't use present perfect (has lost) with a specific time reference (yesterday).

    Kartik lost his water bottle yesterday in class.

    You can move "yesterday" around to be first or last in the sentence as well.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
