I found a sentence in a certain online test. It has been created by native English speakers, so I believe its grammar must be correct.
Now, here is a sentence that made me wonder: "Did you ever take a class in school just because you heard the person you liked was taking it?". The test is supposed to help me create a portrait of my ideal match. Thus, I believe that the emphasis is on the fact that the action has happened, not on the fact that it happened in the past. I believe that it would be corrected by an English teacher if I wrote something like this in a class. The person must certainly be alive because dead people tend to make for very bad matches.
Why did the author use Past Simple instead of Present Perfect?
