    Red face All he did is/was.......

    Which one is grammatically correct?

    1- All he did is what everyone should do.

    2- All he did was what everyone should do.

    Hi teachers, I think the first one is grammatically correct. The second one must be "all he did was what everyone should have done."

    Can someone please help me?

    They are both correct.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    In fact, all three are correct, depending on the context.
