    Re: which one is correct?

    the first one is correct.

    Past Perfect --> HAD + PP (third form of the verb)

    (1)become (2)became (3)become


    When you use "had" like this you have to use PP (third form of the verb)

    Re: which one is correct?

    I read in novel : By the coversation ended. i had become half a millionaire.

    but in another paragraph i read i Became Self-conscious.

    so why there is such difference.

    'I became', past simple.
    'I had become', past perfect.
