Hi all, I'm relaying (or telling over?) a discussion I had with my colleague to a friend of mine. The colleague said: "I recommend you proceed with option A" (meaining that the decision on whether to proceed with option A or B has not been made by the time we talked). What's the correct way of retelling this: a. He recommended that we proceed with option A. b. He recommended that we proceeded with option A. Now, imagine that by the time I tell this to the friend the decision had alreay been made. Would this require any change in the tenses? E.g. c. He had recommended that we had proceeded with option A but we sticked to B. Thanks!
