    sentence

    I.“I want give you all you wanted / want.”
    Both “wanted” and “want” are right in this case?

    II.“ I met someone you know/ knew last night.”
    Both “know” and “knew” are right in this case?

    Pls.

    Grammatically all are correct, depending on the context.

    Dear Angel,

    When people say " I know you " and " I knew you", is there any difference between them? Please.

    Re: sentence

    One is in the present - I know you well. I know the way home. I know how to read.

    One is in the past - I knew you when we were children. I knew the way from the station when I was young. I knew how to paint but my hands cannot hold a brush now.
