    Jake was acting as though

    Jake was acting as though he were invested / had been invested with special powers but nobody was taken in.

    I'm confused what tense should I use?

    If I rewrite the sentence this way "Jake was acting as though his boss had invested him with special powers but nobody was taken in" will it be correct?

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: Jake was acting as though

    Yes, but put a comma after "powers".

    (Say: "I am confused about what tense I should use.")
