    Present participle phrase :

    we use present participle phrase to show :

    1. the reason why something happened .

    Example : Having lots of unusual attractions , the theme park is very popular .

    ( = Since the theme park has lots of unusual attractions , it is popular . )

    2. that twoactions happen at the same time or one right after another .

    Example : Seeing his mother , the little boy ran towards her .

    ( = When the little boy saw his mother , he ran towards her . )

    Past participle phrases :

    we use past participle to introduce the reason why something happened .

    As with a present participle phrase , a past participle phrase can be used with both the simple present and simple past tense .

    P.S. we use a present participle phrase for an active verb and a past participle for a passive verb .

    Example : Amazed by the colourful tropical fish , the children shouted with joy .

    ( = Since the children were amazed by the colourful trpoical fish , they shouted with joy . )

    pp = Past Participle

    for example:

    go going went gone

    gone就係past participle
