    has taken/took

    "Frank went to Italy last year. He has taken/took many trips to Italy since he started his business."
    Is it "has taken" or "took" or are both possible?

    Re: has taken/took

    Welcome to the forum.

    Use 'has taken' in this context.

    Re: has taken/took

    Use "has taken" here because you are referring to the time period between starting the business and now.

    You could use "took" in something like "He took many trips to Italy in the first few months after starting his business".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
