    Post Tenses and Expressions

    Can you help me with these questions?

    1. I thought I (have/had) classes today. <-- Should I use have or had if I don't have class today actually?

    2. One is prone to (errors/ making mistakes/ make mistakes) when s/he (has/ is under) sleep deficit. <-- Is this sentence correct? Or should I rewrite it?

    Thank you very much! :)

    1. I would use "had".

    2. I would use "making mistakes". For the second, you could use "has" "a sleep deficit".

    Rain_M, there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you" or to quote our replies back to us. It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
