Hello everybody! I've just done an exercise coming from this wonderful website and I have some doubts; I can't understand why I have to use the simple past in the following sentences; I would have opted for the present perfect:
"I never KNEW my grandmother because she died before I was born" ----------> Does "I have never known..." sound wrong?
"I just SAW Meg and Brian at the party" -------------->What about "I have just seen"?
Maybe the second sentence can have a double meaning:
"I saw just Meg and Brian at the party": I saw them and no one else, the party has already finished, it was in the past.
"I have just seen Meg and Brian at the party": I've just met them and I'm still at the party.
Do you agree?
Thank you in advance!
