可以幫我check一下時態嗎?

Dear seller,

We got your packages on May-5. However, the two items seemed not brand new condition because we found there are some scratches on the unit.

請問以上時態是否正確?還是應該改寫為we found there are some scratches on the unit.

已更新項目:

寫錯了,是否該改寫為we found there were some scratches on the unit.

2 個已更新項目:

然後可以麻煩解釋一下為什麼使用這個時態?

3 個已更新項目:

如果是應該用are,那前面的seem是否也該改為seem就好?

    Dear seller,

    We got your packages on May-5. However, the two items seemed not brand new condition because we found there are some scratches on the unit.

    the two items seemed not brand new condition

    應該seem就好我改了一下句子:

    The two items doesn't seem like brand new condition,

    because we found there are some scratches on the unit.

    我認為用"found out"比較有發現的感覺所以變成以下這樣:

    because we found out that there are some scratches on the unit.

    全文應該是:

    Dear seller,

    We got your packages on May 5th. However, The two items doesn't seem like

    brand new condition, because we found out that there are some scratches on

    the unit.

    你的時態基本上沒錯只是the two items seemed not brand new condition

    這一段的語句有點不通順唸起來卡卡的少了介係詞

    還有對於如果用are後面是不是接seem,要看你的句子是不是連在一起的,

    如果是的話一個動詞現在式所有的詞都該是現在式,

    以句點前來決定一個句子裡應該都是現在式還是過去式.

    現在式句子在句點前都該是現在是:

    EX: The two items are not brand new, they seem to have some scratches.

    過去式句子在句點前都該是過去式:

    EX: The two items seemed to have some scratches, they were not brand new.

    希望有幫助到你.

    We got your packages on May 5th.

    However, these two items don't seemed to be in brand new condition because we find some scratches on the unit.

    or

    However, there are some scratches on these two items and they are not brand new.

    Please kindly advise the reason of it.

    Thank you.

    我先把你整句的正確句子寫一下:

    Dear Seller,

    We got your packages on May 5th. However, the two items do not look new because there are some scratches on the units.

    這樣就可以避免時態的問題,不過如果你一定要用你那種寫法,你會這樣寫:

    However, the two items didn't look like new because we found that there were some scratches on the units. (units記得用複數唷!)

    會用過去式,因為整句都是過去式。這是很多台灣人搞不清楚的問題。there were some scratches是包在 we found...這個子句裡,所以這是時態一致的問題,你不用擔心因為你寫過去式,別人就會認為現在已經沒有 scratches了,這是兩碼子的事。

    如果你是單獨講這個句子 There are some scratches.那你可以用現在式。

    舉例,假設你去過美國,你覺得它很漂亮,你想寫一篇介紹美國的文章,你會這樣寫:

    I went to America last year. It was very beautiful. We saw beautiful mountains, ... 都用過去式,這並不代表美國"現在"不漂亮了,這只是時態一致的問題。

    當然,你要寫 We found that there are...大家也看得懂,這不是個嚴重的文法問題,只是如果你要的是正確答案,建議還是保持時態一致。
