    The man is sitting.

    The man sits.

    Change the verb to the past tense.

    The man sat.

    The mas is sitting -- present tense, progressive/continuous aspect, so:

    The man was sitting...past tense, progressive/continuous aspect. - this your answer.

    other past tenses:

    The man sat. simple past

    The man has sat....present (tense) perfect (aspect) -- but the present perfect is treated as a past tense in English.

    The man had sat....past tense, perfect aspect.

    The man did sit. past tense, emphatic aspect.

    The man has been sitting -- present perfect progressive/continuous (present tense, perfect and progressive/continuous aspects).

    The man had been sitting -- past perfect progressive...

    If the only thing you are doing is changing to the past tense, then only "was sitting" is correct, from "is sitting". Any other form changes the tense, aspect, or both.

      Your reply is nonsense. Also you have spelt 'tense' wrongly.

    I suppose you mean:

    'The man is sitting.' Please can you change this to Past Tense?

    Present: is

    Past: was

    But if you are already having problems with the verb 'to be', please ask your teacher to help you to understand.

    The man was sitting.

    You may also have "the man sat" - but never "the man was sat"
