    1. ''I hope that he is studying his lecture.''
    2. ''I hope that he studied his lecture.'' (We do not know whether he studied or not, we specify just our wish; otherwise I would use ''I wish...'' construction.)

    If the proper conditions are created, can the first and the second sentences be correct in terms of grammar?

    I have no English teacher, I try to improve my language on my own. Thanks for your help.

    Re: hope

    They are both grammatically correct. (not "true")
