Notes above.I have a doubt regarding the usage of before connection conjuntcion.I will ask my doubt with an example.
Suppose some things are thoroughly checked and afterwards moved into some location.In this context consider the below sentences.
A:)Before all these things are moved over here,
itself these things havethey must be thoroughly beenchecked
In this example, "before they are" suggests an action which will take place in the future, therefore the checking must be done before the moving. (Before you move them, you must check them.)
B:)Before these things were moved over here,
itself thingsthey have thoroughly beenwere/had been thoroughlychecked.
The action of moving has already happened, therefore the past tense is required. (They were thoroughly checked before they were moved.)
the doubt is regarding the phrase "Before all these things are/were moved"
For me it appears that both the sentences are correct for that reason that in the first sentences you are thinking of the state of the things moved in some place and in the sentences you are thinking of action of moving the things.
Are both the senetnces correct?Please answer me.Iam confused a lot on this.
