Hi,

In "I was at home and watched TV yesterday", is it possible to shorten the sentence like "I was at home watch TV yesterday."

I was at home and watched TV yesterday => I was at home watch TV yesterday

e.g.

1.) I was at home and watching TV at 2 in the afternoon yesterday => I was at home watching TV at 2 in the afternoon yesterday.

2.) Carol and Tom were at the movie theater and watching a film last night => They were at the movie theater watching a film last night.

Thanks in advance.

1. Yesterday, at 2 pm, I was at home watching TV. --is fine.

2. They were at the movies last night. --is about as condensed as you can make it.

I was at home and watched TV yesterday.

You should maintain the same tense in a single sentence. So the above is correct. The verb 'watched' matches with the verb 'was'.

1.) I was at home and watching TV at 2 in the afternoon yesterday => I was at home watching TV at 2 in the afternoon yesterday

People write 'at 2 o' clock yesterday afternoon.

I would write both of your sentences. The only change is the words 'yesterday afternoon'.
