I am confused with whether I should use the subjonctive in this sentence. Je suis contente que tu aies aimé l'exercice.

Je suis contente = emotion

But I know that the person loved the exercice because she already told me. So, shouldn't it be passé composé?  "Je suis contente que tu as aimé l'exercice."

merci, tutu

This question relates to:
French lesson "Que + Le Subjonctif = Whether [one does something]"

Debora,

It's a good question.

I think you may need to employ the subjonctif passé:

Je suis contente que tu aies aimé l'exercise.
