Question about interrogations in past tense

I asked this question to a friend of mine and he said that you can't use "sorted" with "did". Is he correct? If yes, what is the correct grammatical sentence?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Your friend is right. You can't use "sorted" with "did". Hence, the correct sentence is:

How did you sort among such a large number of t-shirts?

Plus, don't use "among" with "sort". You can say:

How did you sort such a large number of t-shirts?

How did you sort out such a large number of t-shirts?

  • I would remove the among as well. – Roaring Fish Jun 22 '12 at 11:27
