Sells or Sold?
Does ‘sells’ in the sentence,”I find a pet store that sells ferrets.” stay as ‘sells’ or change to ‘sold’ if you are changing the sentence to Simple Past Tense?
or fill in the name and email fields below:
I find a pet store that sells ferrets is wrong.I found(past tense) a pet store that sells ferrets is right.Sold only if they used to sell them but they do not sell them anymore.
Yeah, i agree with Rik853,"Sold only if they used to sell them but they do not sell them anymore."
"Sold only if they used to sell them but they do not sell them anymore." Well, if you were telling about something that happened today, that's true.
But if you were telling a story from the past, you'd say, "I found a store that sold ferrets." And that doesn't mean that they no longer do so.
