    Hi,

    Simple past tense:

    A crow let the nut fall down onto the grass from a tall tree.The nut

    did not break_____(not break) open because the grass was too soft.

    They/we/you/I/he/she/it + did not ( didn't) ( in simple past tense)______________________________________

    Simple present tense:

    A crow lets the nut fall down onto the grass from a tall tree.The nut

    doesn't break_____(not break) open because the grass is too soft.

    Note: You should take about the PAST with the simple past tense.

    1) grass <------uncounatble the grass IS.................

    2) The nut<------------- just ONE use " doesn't" in present tense.

    In present tense, when you see " he/she/it", you have to use" is" or

    use " doesn't/ does" followed by a verb or an adverb.

    Examples:

    He is sleeping. She is beautiful( adjective). It is nice( adjective). ( present tense)

    He doesn't understand ( verb) it.

    She doesn't understand ( verb) it.

    It doesn't matter( verb).

    He doesn't really ( adverb)understand it.

    She doesn't really ( adverb)understand it.

    It doesn't really ( adverb) matter.

    Note: The adverb" really" can be placed after the subject ( he/she/it)

    He really doesn't understand it. <-------------------Correct too!

    They/we/you/I don't ( do) verb/adverb

    _He/she/it doesn't= ( does not) ( does) verb/adverb

    ________________________________________

    仲有have not係咪只可以用係present perfect tense??

    Usually it is.

    They/we/I/ you + have +past participle ( present perfect tense)

    He/she/it + has +past participle ( present perfect tense)

    Examples:

    1) They have eaten( past participle).

    2) She has finished ( past participle) her homework.

    eat ( present) ate ( past) eaten ( past participle)

    finish( present) finished( past) finished( past participle)

    Bye for now.
