What is an example of verb tense disagreeing?


Answer by  hellokiki (6)

Verb tense disagreement occurs when a writer uses two or more verb tenses in the same sentence. An example is: "When she is living in Japan, she ate with chopsticks."


Answer by  palaeologus (564)

If a dependent clause of a sentence clearly takes place in the same time (past, present, future) as the main clause, the two verbs should be in the same time. "It rained when I come home." -- verb tenses disagree. "It rains when I come home." -- proper. "It rained when I came home." -- proper.
