Why is this "were" but all the others are "used to be"?

था means was, the structure of "Used to be" is used when you conjugate a verb in present simple followed by था, as in "वह सोता था" = He used to sleep. But था being used without a verb means was. So, "Peter and Neha used to be here" = पीटर और नेहा यहाँ होते थे
