Tenses by Dagny Taggart - Thursday, 7 August 2008, 06:40 AM
I just checked the date of the last article that I wrote; it was posted on 15th May, 2008. Frankly speaking, it was written some 20 days prior to that date and, after much procrastinating and rationalizing, we decided to post it on 15th Day of May. Now I have no choice but to write another article. Although TG and I don't suffer from writer's block, our eagerness to do something better with our every article causes us much delay. Another reason for delays that I can think of is that we are our own bosses so there is actually no one who can question us about the work being done on time or not. We do things because we like doing them. Some two years back, TG and I used to sit in IIT Delhi campus and talk about our dreams while sipping our coffee. I don't know what stuff dreams are made of but I know that if you dream and work towards them, they do come true. We also dreamt of going to IIMs but that didn't happen. The only thing we knew was that we were standing on a hill in our mountain of dreams, telling ourselves it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems. Taking that as a bitter medicine we kept moving. Today if you ask us whether we have an iota of regret about not going there, we'd say Nah!! Today, having two companies under our belt and meeting more than forty thousand students in one and a half years doesn't feel so bad at all. Does it? So dream and work towards your dreams. No matter what happens on the D Day, go face it and don't let the much-hyped exam deter you from making your dreams come true. So, here's presenting you my humble addition that may help you in a little way to face the monster on 16th November 2008. This tensed topic is about the tensions in Grammar Land. Oh yes! There is a Grammar Land where people like adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, nouns, verbs etc., dwell, and where there are people there is tension. The only whacky thing with these people is that they worry about their present as well. Donâ€™t ask me how because I am the Queen of Gadha Land, and not Grammar Land. So, I donâ€™t know. Well! When I have shared the best of my moments with the Gadha Gang, how could I not share this tension? But I digress. On my research I got to know that these tensions are close associates of verbs. They are commonly addressed as Verb Tenses in other lands. From here on, I'll present my research on the topic. All you have to do is fill your coffee mugs, make yourself comfortable in your chairs, and pick up a pen and a paper. And do what? Read on, what else? I won't go much on the definition about what Past, Present and Future tenses are but this table would help you understand the differences in the usage. We'll be talking more about the application part.
In normal speech, we generally take care of the usage but when it comes to sentence correction, we tend to deviate. The following points would help you overcome this problem: Use Simple Tenses Try to use Simple Tenses Simple Present, Simple Past, and Simple Future instead of progressive tenses until and unless the continuous aspect of an action is not defined. When a passage has more than one verb, the relation between the tenses of the verbs is called the sequence of tenses. Sentences with more than one action do not necessarily require multiple tenses. Unless, the action is not taking place at different times, use the same verb tenses in a given sentence. I swim, dance , and jog every day. (all present tense) I swam, danced, and jogged yesterday. (all paste tense)
The infinitive "to have been taught" indicates the time prior to the verb "consider". walked. and ambition. and they do. to be. have different participles.5/18/13 MBA| CAT| CAT 2011| CAT 2012| CAT Online| MBA 2012| MBA Entrance Exams| CAT Test| Preparation| CAT Questions In the following sentence.g. The Thumb Rule for forming a sentence in Present Perfect is: They have not submitted the assignments they ought to.

Another error is in the meaning that it implies. (past perfect and past) Now let's have a look at a sentence correction question: Native American burial sites dating back 5 000 years indicate that the residents of Maine at that time were part of a widespread culture of Algonquian-speaking people. The presentation had ended but we stayed for the lunch. event or condition ended before another past action. Use of perfect tense suggests that the Native Americans had previously ceased to be part of the widespread culture. Don't use Perfect Tenses Imperfectly The present perfect tense is used to describe action that began in the past and continues into the present or has just been completed at the moment of utterance. or condition began. In an effort to reduce their inventories. the meaning incorrectly comes out that the buildings have been constructed after they were destroyed last year. e. Option A and C illogically state that some buildings were both destroyed and damaged. (A) were part of a widespread culture of Algonquian-speaking people (B) had been part of a widespread culture of people who were Algonquian-speaking (C ) were people who were part of a widespread culture that was Algonquian-speaking (D) had been people who were part of a widespread culture that was Algonquian-speaking (E) were a people which had been part of a widespread.

The past perfect tense is used to refer to actions that took place. If more than one action takes place at different times in past. different verb tenses are used. Have a look at the following example:A firm that specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims from a one-page writing sample that it can assess more than three hundred personality traits. The Thumb Rule for forming a sentence in Past Perfect is: Each of the italicized verbs in the following sentences is in the past perfect. Option E states that the construction of buildings occurred last year. the logic says that construction of the buildings was completed prior to the earthquake. The future perfect is used to refer to an action that will be completed sometime in the future before another action takes place. How is that possible? Also in option A fails to indicate that the buildings were constructed before the earthquake occurred. talked. and to be.

Option B and D are unnecessarily using present perfect tense and in the process deviating from the original meaning of the sentence. the price cut is done now and the reduction in inventories will happen later. James had been working in the same company for almost three years before he found another job. past perfect for an earlier action and simple past for later action should be used.
