FAQs on Integrated Grammar Solved Exercises: Tense - English Grammar Advanced - Class 10

1. What is the importance of tense in English grammar?
Ans. Tense is an essential aspect of English grammar as it indicates the time at which an action occurs. It helps in understanding the sequence of events, and the context in which they happen. Proper usage of tense makes communication clear, easy to understand, and effective.
2. What are the different types of tenses in English?
Ans. English has three main types of tenses: past, present, and future. Each tense is further divided into four subcategories - simple, progressive, perfect, and perfect progressive. This makes a total of twelve tenses in English.
3. How do you identify the tense of a sentence?
Ans. To identify the tense of a sentence, one needs to look at the verb used in the sentence. The form of the verb changes according to the tense. For example, the past tense of 'run' is 'ran,' and the present tense is 'run.' Similarly, the future tense is formed by using 'will' or 'shall' before the base form of the verb.
4. What is the difference between simple and progressive tenses?
Ans. Simple tenses are used to describe actions that happened in the past, present, or future. They are formed by using the base form of the verb. On the other hand, progressive tenses are used to describe actions that are in progress or ongoing. They are formed by using 'be' as an auxiliary verb with the present participle (-ing) form of the verb.
5. How can one improve their understanding and usage of tenses in English?
Ans. One can improve their understanding and usage of tenses in English by practicing regularly, reading extensively, and seeking feedback from a competent teacher or friend.
