    Re: correct sentences

    The first one could be either "because it was raining" or "because it is raining".

    Thy are both grammatical.

    She is wearing the raincoat just now because it was raining.

    'Just now' means 'a short time ago'. Shouldn't 'is' be 'was', based on the defiinition?

    Many thanks.
