    Welcome to the forum, Ananda Roy Chowdhury.


    "What had i I told you?" This could be correct. We can't say for sure without more context.

    "My tense is alright." It sounds a little strange. Once again, only context can tell us if it's appropriate. Many people prefer to write 'all right', and some consider 'alright' to be incorrect.

    "As I had said, ......." Yet again, we need context.
