have or had and do or did?
1 Where have/had you been?
2 I have/had already washed my hands.
3 Didn't/Don't we supposed to use the blue broom to sweep the floor?
4 How do/did you know/knew me?
5 What do/did you mean?
(Hope someone can answer this. I have kept this question for a long time . Please give the correct answer. ;) )
Most of Scarlet's answers aren't necessarily correct. The answers to 1, 2, 4 and 5 really depend on the context. For instance, these are both correct:
How do you know me?
How did you know me?
The one you want depends on your meaning. If you're asking how someone recognized you in a crowd, or if you're asking about an event that happened in the past, then "did" is correct. ("Know," however, is always the one you want, rather than "knew.")
If you want to ask us about a specific case, please provide the context and we can help out.
