|Assunto:||Question about tenses|
In class we were going through a text, changing verb forms where needed. We came across the correct sentence:
"His wife retrieved it from the rubbish bin, and soon afterwards it was accepted for an award."
One student then asked why we would not use the past perfect in this case, since the sentence talks about 2 past events (in sequence).
His wife had retrieved it from the rubbish bin, and soon afterwards it had been accepted for an award.
Can anyone help me out here?
