    Which tense?

    How can I complete this: I/not care/he/do/so far:
    I don't care what he does so far.
    or
    I don't care what he has done so far.
    Thank you!

    not a teacher

    Both are correct. The lst sentence implies the action is on-going.

    The second one is correct. If you put a comma in the first, thus: "I don't care what he does, so far" it means that up to this point in time you haven't cared what he does.
