Passé composé

Why are these 2 words "fascine and intimide"  not written in the passé composé.

Hi Nancy,

There is a grammatical reason for this and it is because of the word 'depuis'.

The text says -

"Depuis qu'elle est toute petite, cet instrument la fascine et l'intimide à la fois"

Please look at the following Kwiziq lesson which explains the rule -

https://kwiziq.learnfrenchwithalexa.com/revision/grammar/how-you-use-depuis-since-for-with-le-present-and-not-le-passe-compose-prepositions-of-time

But even if you didn't know this, the prompt did use the present tense as a hint.

Hope this helps!
