Erros comuns

Escolha a opção correta

The clock has struck.

He said that he will come tomorrow.
He said that he would come tomorrow.

Will changes to would in subordinate causes, when the verb in the main clause is in a past tense.

Next
I saw the Parthenon of Athens.
I have seen the Parthenon of Athens.

If we are speaking of the result of a past action rather than of the action we must use the present perfect tense. When somebody says, I have seen Panthenon, he or she is not thinking so much of the past act of seeing it, as the present result of that past action.
