Great! :DOriginally Posted by jack
There isn't much different as stand alone sentences. The first is simple past. It describes an action that happened in the past. The second is present perfect. The action still occurred in the past, but it may not be completed (he may fill up again) or it has relevance to something in the present (perhaps a discussion about gas prices). :wink:a)I filled up the gas two times this month.
b)I have filled up the gas two times this month.
What is the difference between a & b?
sounds good, thanks.
You're welcome.Originally Posted by jack
Would you had watched a movie with me if I drove? <--is this sentence incorrect? why and why not? and why kind of sentence error is it?
If used "have instead of "had" what differene would it make?
That sentence is very bad. I assume you are asking someone to see a movie with you and you are offering to drive.Originally Posted by jack
Will you go to a movie with me if I drive? (direct)
Would you go to a movie with me If I drove? (indirect, more polite)
There is no reason to make a request in the past tense. :wink:
sorry, i meant:
Would you have watched a movie with me if I drove?
When you ask that question, You are asking about an event in the past that never took place. It also implies that the movie will be in your car.Originally Posted by jack
The verb tense in the second clause should be past perfect.
Would you have gone to a movie with me if I had driven. :wink:
Have you drink your soup yet?
Have you drank you soup yet?
Are both of these sentences correct? What does the first one mean and the 2nd one? When would i use drank and drink?
Both are wrong- it should be 'Have you drunk...'. You could use the two together if 'drink' is a noun, but even then it sounds a bit funny:
I drank a drink of water.
BTW- we normally 'eat' soup even though it is a liquid.
Have you repaired the car? <--correct?
