This is the second time i"m posting the same qu

Is it because the present tense in the beginning "This is the second time" determines the present perfect tense in the ending "this has happened"?

Or is it because we just have to use the present perfect in this context?

This sentence

"I won the lottery! This was the second time this happened."

is correct and more common than this one

"I"ve sầu won the lottery. This is the second time this has happened."

The correct sentence is:

I"ve sầu won the lottery. This is the second time this has happened.

Your use of the present perfect earlier in the sentence, in "I"ve sầu won," indicates that the event has happened recently. To be consistent with this, you have sầu khổng lồ use the present perfect in the second part of the sentence, as wtienhieptruyenky.com.
