    Daily conversation...but which one is correct?

    Dear All,

    Cicily again. My question is as following.

    Even to this day we don't know what happened
    (1) for sure.
    (2) some day.

    Which one is the correct ending for the sentence and why?

    By the way, when we use "some day", do we use past tense or future tense, or both are adopted?

    Thanks a lot for your kind assistance. 8)

    Best Regards,
    Cicily from Taiwan

    some day, adv. at some unknown time in the future. :wink:

    All the best, :D
