Assunto:  past perfect
 
Mensagem:  Polibius,

The idea is just that : We had just chosen a ring when a man with a gun came in.=> First we chose the ring and afterwards the robber came in  , so  I can conclude that had just chosen is correct .

 

for the first sentence I ‘d like to know why you used simple past if the second sentence is also in the simple past and the first one had occurred before the second one , so  why past perfect can’t be used.?
