    Hi All

    Could Someone please help me with this question?
    Suppose that I bought my car last year. And now (in present) my friend asks me that " When do you buy this car?"
    Is his question correct? And How could I answer that question? I should use " present tense" or " past tense" to answer?
    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Hi All

    The question is incorrect. If you already own the car, the question should be "When did you buy this car?" and your answer would also be in the past tense. "I bought this car last year."
