    Red face present perfect vs past simple

    Hello There,

    I need your help.

    I would tend to say "WHAT HAPPENED during the past (or last) weekS?"

    But now i'm having a doubt, should we rather say "WHAT'S HAPPENED during the past (or last) weekS?"

    Another thing, Are, in this case, "past" and "last" interchangeable ?

    Thanks A lot

    -In your sentences ,"past" and "last" are not interchangeable , I think .

    -I think we should say :

    1.WHAT HAPPENED during the last weeks ?



    2.WHAT'S HAPPENED the past weeks?

    WHAT’S HAPPENED since last week ?

    -The teachers in UK can help you .
