What is the exact difference between Imparfait and Plus que parfait (PQP). Some people say for 'had', we have to used PQP but some people say that for 'had', even imparfait can be used, but exactly in which situations we have to use imparfait and PQP, nobody is able to explain logically. Anybody, reply please...
If "had" is followed by a past participle, then it's the PQP.
"He had an apple" = "Il avait une pomme" (imparfait)
"He had eaten an apple" = "Il avait mangé une pomme" (PQP).
