The man who is asking the question is interested in the result - so, we should use here Present Perfect: Why have you bought...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JerryMcCarthy99

But, but, but.... "kupiłeś" is perfective, and "did you buy?" is also a completed action in the past and is quite equivalent to "have you bought?".

Both of those English alternatives are accepted answers.

That's not how the Perfect works. It's not focused on the result, it's how the result affects the time in question.
