Il ________ descendu le drapeau
I ran into this prompt on the quiz "Il ________ descendu le drapeau, car la reine avait quitté le palais." The correct answer is "il a descendu." Why is it "a" and not "avait"? I feel this is more of an English question than a french question. We have "la reine avait quitté." So shouldn't it be "il AVAIT descendu"? When should we use avait and avait for both clauses?
This question relates to:French lesson "Descendre can be used with avoir or être in Le Passé Composé... and changes meaning"
