    2. Solution Exercise no. 8

      1.I have not gone to the market yet. Here Present Perfect Tense is confused with Past Indefinite tense.Third form of verb with has or have is used. So I have not gone........

      2. It is also similar sentence I have not seen him for a month.

      3.Since or for with time shows that this sentence is of Present Perfect cont Tense So Has Have +been+1st form of verb+ing with for or since time. I have been living in Bombay Since 2010.

      4.& 5 Yesterday & Last Sunday shows that it is Past Indefinite tense. 2nd form of verb is used. He shifted his house yesterday.he resigned from his service last Monday.

  5. @Anonymous Present perfect tense is mostly confused with Past Indefinite tense.In Present Perfect tense has + third form of verb is used. In Past Indefinite tense second form of verb is used.The words 'Yesterday' & Last Monday shows that these sentences are of past tense So Past indefinite tense i.e. second form of verb is to applied He shifted and He resigned are correct.
