I asked the question some time ago. And I understand you explanation. And I know the key is 'c'. Spring is here. The ground is covered, _______ with a green carpet.
a. as it is b. as it was c. as it were If I change the sentence:
Spring is here. The ground is covered, _______ with grass.
Then both 'as it is' and 'as it was' are possible. Is that right?
Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you in advance.
