How come sentence1 is more correct than sentence2, in terms of BETTER FIT with its relative clause?
- Not only DID he exceed the speed limit, but he HAD also drank alcohol. (From a website)
- Not only he EXCEEDED the speed limit, but he HAD also drank alcohol. (My construction)
Both introductory clause (sentence 1 & 2) are in the past, aren't they? BUT, how come, if I were to construct a sentence, the sentence#2 would be incorrect?
