We can use present indefinite tense instead of past indefinite or present perfect for past actions when the speaker's answer or question is next to the listener's, but we normally use past indefinite tense. It can depend on motives. My question is what is the difference between the two uses? Do we have to be careful to use tenses that way?
Thanks to 5jj for his great explanation of this kind of use of tense in this post :http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...l-correct.html
Thank you all....

You ask for giving some examples, because I could not give any example but surprisingly that has become an example.
