Please share your opinion with me on the follow write-out for improvement. Thank you.
"Have you ever been in a position where you have wondered about how your
boss (whom you think is not up to the job) came to be in the
rank/position he is in? Have you ever been to a conference and wondered
how that guy who gave that totally absurd presentation ever become a
CEO? If you have, then welcome to the concept of the Peter Principle".
how that guy who gave that totally absurd presentation ever become [became] a CEO? If you have, then welcome to the concept of the Peter Principle".
indeed, the verbs must agree.
I'm still not clear with "have you ever been to.." (present perfect tense) going along with past tense such as "wondered", "gave", and "became."
Shouldn't they be in present tense?
Do correct me if I'm wrong, thank you.
Hello....is anybody there?
Is it okay to start with present prefect tense and then continue with past tense?
Unless if you tell me that "Have you ever been to" is past tense or there's some kind of exemption here then it makes sense.
Appreciate if you'd elaborate further, thank you.
