    news which she heard 'was' not good

    Is the correct answer 'was', instead of 'is' due to the presence of the word 'heard', indicating that it is a past tense sentence?

    ---> The news which she heard WAS not good.

    Thank you!

    Re: news which she heard 'was' not good

    The correct answer depends upon what the question is. However, you could use 'was' or 'is' in that sentence depending upon the context.
