Anonymous ... as you seemed to have mean/have thought/have expected it to be.Hi. Could you please check this? I'm not sure what combinations you intend.

Thanks.

AnonymousCan you compare these?Both

... as you seemed to mean. vs ... as you seemed to have meant.

... as you seemed to thought. vs. ... as you seemed to have thought.

... as you seemed to expect. vs. ... as you seemed to have expected.

*seemed*and

*to have ...*together is overkill. I'd recommend using one or the other, thus:

*... as you seem to have meant.*(I greatly prefer this one.)

*... as you seemed to mean.*

And this is an unrelated pair but wish you would answer:

Whether it be this ... vs. Whether it is this ...
