Which tense should I use

Post by Joeshi » Sun Oct 20, 2019 2:35 pm

He _______(use) a handkerchief to wipe his mouth after finishing the meal

Should I use “will use”, or
“Is using”, or
“Uses” , or
“Has used”?

Is there any hint in this sentence that I can only use specific tense to be grammatically correct?

No, they are all possible (although 'has used' is relatively unlikely).
