    Past tense or Present tense?

    Can somebody tell which tense should I use?

    A.) "I think my sentence is correct but someone tells me that it is wrong."
    B.) "I thought my sentence was correct but someone told me that it was wrong."
    C,) " I think my sentence is correct but someone told me that it was wrong."

    I think C is correct.

    Re: Past tense or Present tense?

    Both B and C are fine.
