Hi All,

I have a sentence that reads:

XX Systems were developed based on over 10 years of research ...

The client wants:

XX Systems *are *develo9ped based on over 10 years of research ...

I am certain that "are" is incorrect here, but don't know how to explain
this. Can you help?

Thanks

Deborah
