my friend asks me general question "What did you do yesterday?" and for example my car is broken and the damage is to big so it can not be fixed within one day.Do i have to use past simple or continuous?
a)"I was repairing my car (the whole day/morning/10 hours)?"
b)"I repaired my car" - does not matter if the car is fixed or not today.
I have a mess in my room and my mom says "clean your room!" Next day my room is still messy and she says :
c)"You should have cleaned your room ,what were you doing (all day)?"
d)"You should have cleaned your room ,what did you do ?"
