Translation:The painter took the flower of the chemist and sent it to Mars.
ok, clearly this is an attempt at wordplay on the effect of various tones on "hoa", but ironically there's no audio to make it effective....
Question: if there is a past tense in the first part of the sentence, does that make the entire sentence in the past tense?
Such a stupid sentence .if the purpose was to show different ways of pronouncing hoa why there is no audio attached ? If not then this is clearly just a joke of a sentence to kill even the most laborous students!
Why is gửi in the past tense? The sentence can work in either tense (at least as an exercise in forms of hoa)
The particle "đã" is somewhat like English auxiliary verb "did", which turns the sentence into past tense.
That's true but doesn't answer the question: how do you say "the painter took ... and sends ...". "Take" precedes "send" in time so the past tense makes sense, but send can be in the present (or future)
