Interested in Language
Here's a moive thread as follows:-
A man and a woman are walking along the street. An old man has stared at the woman. When the od man has gone, the man asks the woman "'you knew him?'.
Why does the man use the past tense of 'know; i.e knew? Can we use 'know in the above context?
Thank you for you help.
