Which of the options was your choice?
Student or Learner
Can someone please tell me which one of these alternatives is correct? One of the options for both were what my "editor" told me but I'm not convinced he is right. Would just like a second opinion. Thank you.
The events surrounding the fall of the Franklin Community Federal Credit Union mark/marked one of the darkest periods in the history of the State of Nebraska.
The prominence and esteem of the perpetrators involved were the main reasons/was the main reason why the case received so much attention.
Please note that a better title would have been mark/marked.

Well I had a different line but I think "marked" is the correct choice, and I used "was the main reason."
I prefer "mark." I don't necessarily see the marking as just a past event.
Thanks for your responses.
The fall of the credit union happened in 1988.
