Is this present and past combination correct?

  • What kind of grammatical structure is this? Present+Past? – jimmy Oct 31 '18 at 17:43

In particular, you haven't shown any evidence of what research you've done, or explained what you think the specific problem might be. For further guidance, see How to Ask, and make sure you take the Tour.

  • It's both present and past. The main clause is in the present tense. I'm not sure (of) X. But mixing tenses, while often wrong, is not always wrong. It's fine in this case. – Jason Bassford Oct 31 '18 at 22:54
