    tenses

    He wanted to go but I asked him to stay for some more time. Is this a correct sentence?

    It's not incorrect but it could be made more natural with "He wanted to go but I asked him to stay a bit longer/a little longer".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
