    Default Doubt in simple present tense

    Hi
    I have doubt in simple tense like
    I am done it – I have done – I did it – I have been done it
    I knew what is the difference between present tense and present perfect continues and simple past tense
    But I don’t know where I have to use simple tense( I am done)

    Can you please correct me?

    'I am done it' and 'I have been done it' are not English tense-forms.

    I do it.
    I did it.
    I have done it.
    I had done it.

    I am doing it.
    I was doing it.
    I have been doing it.
    I had been doing it.

    "I am done" is not the simple present of the verb "to do".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
