    Definitely the second one. It is the basic format of questioning in the simple past tense. Note: There should be a question mark at the end of a question. And "professor" is a noun, try writing the full form in formal contexts. Aug 22 at 19:41

    Does this answer your question? Should I use the past tense with did? Aug 22 at 19:45

  • Did is itself a past tense auxiliary. You must have only one conjugated verb in a verb phrase, so the infinitive have is correct. Aug 23 at 1:48
