I have a confusion with a sentence. Is this sentence correct in grammar-article sense?
"It could've been more thrilling as I was expecting something more at that time."
I have confusion with "as" and "was expecting" and I wonder if there is a mismatch of tenses in the second part.
I wanted to say, "It could have been more money as he is an honest guy". My confusion is if I use past tense on main clause "It could have been..." and use "as", can I use any tense with the subordinate clause starting with "as"
