What is the difference between (a) and (b)

(a)"Classical Latin uses the ablative"

(b)"Classical Latin used the ablative"

Whether or not anyone actually uses classical Latin today does not change the fact that classical Latin is still a thing which exists and uses the ablative. So the present tense is correct.
