Hi - Could someone explain why the phrase 'mais elle a toujours aimé cet instrument' is in the perfect tense and not the imperfect? Doesn't the sentence imply that her 'liking' the instrument has no definite time frame and there is no indication of when or if she ever stopped 'liking' the accordion? I also have the same question as Drew and Maren regarding 'mais elle l'a réussi' as an alternative answer to 'mais elle l'a eu'. Thanks!

Perfect = she has always liked this instrument
Imperfect = she always used to like this instrument
You would use whichever means what you want to say I guess.
