英文ask to/tell to

a. My mother asked me to clean my room before I go out.

b. My mother asked me to clean me room before I went out.

這2句有什麼區別?

a.是代表媽媽要求我每次都必須如此做,而b.是代表只要這一次嗎?

或者是只要是間接引述過去說過的話就必須統一皆使用過去簡單式?如b

除非是現在簡單式,才能用: c. My mother asks me to clean my room before I go out.

請解答者詳答哦!

Update:

謝謝

    a. My mother asked me to clean my room before I go out.

    這裡的clean my room before I go out只是單純一個描述

    並不是指某個時點發生的動作

    所以會用現在式

    句意為:我媽要我每次出門前把房間清乾淨

    而第二句

    b. My mother asked me to clean me room before I went out.

    這裡的went out就是指過去發生的動作

    所以用過去式

    句意為:我出去之前,老媽要我先把房間清乾淨

    所以您的理解是對的

    第一句指的是每次,第二句僅指的是那一次

    並沒有規定一定要用哪種時態

    而是視句意來決定

    希望對您有幫助
