    use of the simple past tense

    Hello everybody!

    Suppose that we describe a financial situation of a company during the 1st half of the year 2019.

    The financial situation of the company during the 1st half of the year 2019 deteriorated seriously. The sentence uses the simple past tense because the situation is over and not connected to the present.

    Do you agree?

    The bolded sentence was made up by me.
