1) "He didn't bring the documents"
2) "He has not brought the documents"
Please inform me, whether both of the above sentences are correct or not ? If correct, in which situation we could use each of the above sentences particularly.
As far as I know, it is best to use the simple past, i.e. sentence 1 when I know when the situation happened, like yesterday or this morning or so...also, it gives me the impression that he didnīt bring the documents and now itīs too late anyway , so thereīs no need to bring them anymore.
As for the second sentence, I donīt specify when it happened , itīs not important to know when but what happened and ..he hasnīt brought the documents ( yet ) but there is a chance to do it so.
