    Cool sequence of tenses

    Hello!

    What is the right sequence of tenses for this sentence?

    -Have you forgotten what I've taught you?

    -Have you forgotten what I taught you?

    -Did you forget what I've taught you?

    -Did you forget what I taught you?

    Thank you!

    Default Re: sequence of tenses

    It depends on various factors- has the tuition finished or is it ongoing? Are you asking at the time you became aware of their forgetting or afterwards?
