I have found a question like below.
I _________ (miss) the bus and then I ________ (miss) the aeroplane as well!
According to my view point answer is this;
I missed (miss) the bus and then I have missed (miss) the aeroplane as well!
I thought second clause of the sentence emphasizes first clause happened before the second. So I used Present Simple in first clause. But there is no any time definition for the second one so I prefer Present Perfect.
But given answer is;
I missed (miss) the bus and then I missed (miss) the aeroplane as well!
Both Present Simple. I have no idea how that happens. Then I thought "as well" define the same time for both clauses, but then again there is no specific time and it leads to Present Perfect again. Confused!
Can anybody clarify this for me? Thanks for reading.
