Why do we need a perfect tense here

HI tingle15,

as you know we should eliminate "between" since it requires "AND" not "TO".
So the possible options are B D E.

IN any situation if two events are related and one occurred in the past and the other followed it, the previous event takes perfect tense and the event following it takes simple tense. Hence in this question, the 1st event namely, the bouncing back event has to take perfect tense.

Hence option D.

Regards,
Kyle

@Kyle: I believe the two events i.e., stock market trying to bounce back from 2002 low and US families trying to reel from the recent recession started simultaneously. While the former event is over, the latter is still on going.

Can you elucidate why we require perfect tense for the former event?

Thanks

HI ,

Sry for not giving you the early picture earlier ..

Pls remember this as a thumb rule : " We use present perfect tense for actions that started in the past but continue into the present or remain true in the present. The PP tense has one foot in the past and one foot in the present".

In the above scenario, if we consider the events..." the bouncing back event was still in action while a second event got triggered" . Think of both events in a relative timeline.

Regards,
Kyle

I am aware of the thumb rule but did not know how to apply the same in questions like these.

Your last statement explained it all... Thanks a lot

The easiest way to understand Present perfect / Past simple is to ask the following questions: When did the event happen exactly

If you know the answer, i.e., if the sentence answers the questions ( a day, week, year), you have past simple. If you don`t know when the action took place, then it is present perfect.

In this question, particularly, I think there is a mistake. "while" implies continuous tense, either past continuous or present perfect continuous.

Request you not to write your queries/answers/opinions in question window. It prevents ppl from analysing the question. The whole purpose of GMAT Club forum goes wasted by doing so.
