Answer:

B. The present tense can describe events that took place in the past, but the past tense cannot describe events that take place in the present

Explanation:

In grammar, a tense is a group of words that references time in relation to the time the speaker is speaking.

Therefore, present tense is used to denote events that are currently in action, while past tense is used to describe events that have already taken place.

Example of present tense

Peter is here.

I am at Rita's house

Example of past tense

Peter was here

I was at Rita's house.
