    Default Harddisk has run/ran out of space

    i) He has finished eating.
    ii) He has become a king.


    finish fished fnishing
    become became becoming.


    Could someone explain why not

    iii) He has became a king.

    If the first sentence is correct then the third should be correct.


    iv) My harddisk has run/ran out of space - Which is correct.

    Could someone explain this to me

    iii) He has became a king. Present Pefrect contains have/has + 3rd form of the verb, so "became" is incorrect in this sentence. It should be "become" = 1. become 2. became 3. become.

    If the first sentence is correct then the third should be correct.


    iv) My hard disk has run/ran out of space - Which is correct? The one that I marked.

    The third form of the verb "become" is "become".
    The third form of the verb "finish" is "finished".
