"James thought everything was fine"
Is this sentence is correct? If so how can both verbs "thought" and "was" are in past form? I think if we have two verbs in a sentence one verb must be in present or past and another must be in bare infinitive.
"She got many remarks saying she was beautiful."
How many clauses are there in this sentence? what is the object for this sentence and what is the parts of speech for word "saying"?
Thanks you very much
