(a) Read the following sentences carefully and note the use of the words printed in bold italics.

(i) Anne Frank started writing her diary in the summer of 1942. Today, Anne's voice has reached out across continents and generations and her diary is one of the most important documents of the war.

Note the following

The past perfect form is used to show that an action happened before another in the past.

For example, The plane had landed before we reached the airport.

in this sentence, had landed is an example of the past perfect form.

The action of the plane landing happened before the other action took place.

The other action, in this case, is "before we reached the airport. "

Fill the following in your textbook

Let us revise the different forms of the verb 'have'.

Present forms: have, has.                         
Past form: had

Note how these verbs are used as helping verbs (also called auxiliary verbs) in sentences :

(i) Have: I have received three gifts.
(ii) Has: Reema has left just now.

Both these sentences have the auxiliary verb 'have' in the present tense.

Now read the following sentences where the verb 'has' is used as a helping verb in the past tense :

(iii) Had: Her grandmother had sent her a letter which she received this morning.
(iv) Had: We had given her a bouquet of flowers which made her happy.

5. Read the following sentence :

The teacher handed out the worksheets to the students.
Note that the verb handed is the main verb used in the past tense. Main Verbs can be of two types :

(a) Regular Verbs: These are verbs that form their past tense and past participle forms according to an established pattern. Most verbs have a past tense and past participle with -d.
e.g. play-played-played,     walk-walked-walked

(b) Irregular verbs: They are verbs that do not follow the established pattern when they take their past tense and past participle forms.
e.g. drink-drank-drunk,   ring-rang-rung

some irregular verbs do not change their forms.
