Hi, everyone.
Would you tell me what is the difference in meaning between the two sentences?
1: He must not have been in his right mind to have said that.
2: He must not have been in his right mind to say that
Thanks!

    They are grammatically correct. But then "My green cat eats hammers" is grammatically correct!
    Are they natural? Not very, because they are long-winded - they use more words than necessary. That's not good English.
