Student or Learner
I have read that english uses simple present tense for universal truth. please consider the sentence below.
Norway is located in northern Europe.
The word "is" shows it uses simple present tense but the word "located" uses simple past tense. why it uses simple past tense?
According to the rule. it should have been "Norway locates in northern europe" but "Norway is located in northern europe " is the correct one.

Please don't double post.
I didnt know my previous post was moderated.
