    After he becomes a high school student

    This "becomes" is definitely wrong, I think. It should be corrected to "became", what do you think?
    Or I think this is correct - "Since he became a high school student, he's been getting slimmer."

    56)After he becomes a high school student, he's getting slimmer.

    Re: After he becomes a high school student

    Changing it to 'became' doesn't fix the problem. 'Becomes' is definitely wrong (if the second clause is right). I'd change both clauses.
    Would you like to have another go?
