Hello,

Susan: 'I wish I lived in the mountains'.
Susan said she ........she lived in the mountains.

A. wishes
B. wished

I know that we can use 'wished' in the sentence, but I would like to know what if I use 'wishes' in it?

Thanks.

'Wishes' is fine if the words were uttered not long ago and Susan still wishes this.
