it was dead or it is dead? i'm arguing about this grammar with my friend.
This is how it happened.
in this evening, a centipede came out from a hole of the toilet in our washroom. I flushed it down to the toilet. the time of occurrence was around quarter to 8pm. Now，the time that we are debating in our country is 23:10.
So, the centipede was dead. Am i right?
He said that it was alive when the centipede came out from the toilet hole, so now it is dead.
which one is correct?
