Compound Past

"Where have you eaten yesterday" was marked wrong as a translation; whereas, using the present perfect English translation was correct for the other examples in the first section. Since yesterday is a specific time in the past - couldn't you use simple past then?

Thanks, Pat

True, we don't speak this way. But can you also use simple past for this type of statement in French?
