Hello everyone,

I’m new to this forum, so please bear with me.

I have a question related to the present perfect vs past simple.

I would like to know why it is correct the question “What did you say?” and not “What have you said?” when having a conversation with a friend or acquaintance. I hope anyone could help me.
If I’m not being myself clear, please let me know.

Thank you in advance!
