So our chapter title incorrectly read: “Yesterday, they lead us astray.”

But now you know that “led” is the past tense (and the past participle) of “lead.” So our chapter title should read:

Yesterday, they led us astray.

 

Previous: Chapter 10 - “Lead” vs. “Led”

Next: Chapter 11 - “Principle” vs. “Principal”
