Lembram-se dos verbos para refeições?

Have breakfast

Have lunch

2- Who did see you last week?

Quando temos perguntas com What, Which, Who eHow many referindo-se a mesma pessoa / coisa, não usamos o auxiliar did:

O sujeito de que falamos, é a pessoa que o / a viu na semana passada.

3- When I started in this company, I have already worked at many places.

Veja que temos duas ações ocorridas no passado, mas uma antes da outra. A única forma de expressarmos isto será por meio do Past Perfect (had+ past participle do verbo) e não do Present Perfect (have / has+ past participle do verbo)

Desta forma:

When I started in this company, I had already worked at many places. Registered & Protected
