    Re: Transform present simple sentence in the tird person past simple

    The original sentence is not correct. '... this evening' needs to be '... in the evening'.

    The most natural past-tense sentence is 'She usually cooked a meal in the evening', but it's possible to have 'usually' at the beginning or end.
