What's wrong with きょう、ラメンをたべました?

Asked 8 years ago

In the "I Came, I Saw, I Studied" there is a question:

Fill in the blank with the best verb: きょう、ラメンを_____。

There are both たべます (resulting in "today, [will] eat ramen") and たべました ("today, ate ramen"). Why is きょう、ラメンをたべました a wrong sentence?

P.S. Same with きょう、おちゃを のみます/のみました

and in the next drill set: ことし、日本に 行きません(right)/行きませんでした(wrong)

You're absolutely correct! たべます and たべました, present and past tense are both correct when using きょう. Wrong drill and quiz answers have been changed to, well, actually wrong answers.
