are these two sentences both correct? Is it idiomatic to express the exactly same idea in two ways? In my opinion it doesn't matter whether I choose to use either past perfect + simple infinitve or past simple + past infinitive.
(preceding text in the past tense)
- He had (always) seemed to adapt to any kind of situation very well and that time it was no different.
- He (always) seemed to have adapted to any kind of situation very well and that time it was no different.
To me, there seems to be only a stylistic difference.
Will appreciate any help.
