    Why is it OK to help you with your homework because you are studying in the UAE? Also, if you are studying in the UAE, why do you give your location as the USA?

    You are lucky that people were prepared to help despite it being homework. We are not "afraid" - we make it clear in the forum guidelines that we do not help people with their homework. We only have your word for it that your teacher said it was OK to ask for help. Every learner could tell us that. For my part, I still consider it to be unfair to have help with homework. It is important that your teacher sees what you can do on your own. He/she has no interest in what we are capable of.

    I have no idea why you think it's OK to help you because you study in UAE and I have the same question as bhaisahab - your member profile says you are in the USA. Please update your profile with your true location.

    Because I was studying in the USA one year ago. In that moment, I registered here and put USA as my current location. Now, I am in my country completing my study. Prejudging lead to mistrust.

    No-one prejudged anything. You just need to keep your profile up-to-date I still can't understand why you said that it was OK for us to help you with your homework based on the fact that you are studying in UAE. Could you explain that please, to avoid any further misunderstanding.

    1. Instructions are converted to machine code by interpreters and compilers.=Passive.
    simple present


    2. Programmers developed high-level languages specifically for the user. = Active.
    simple past

    3. Since the development of smaller, personal computer, gamers have been creating games and simulations with more basic codes and assembly languages.=Active.
    present perfect continues

    4. Basic tasks including renaming, deleting, and backing up files can be done by utility programs.=Passive.
    simple present

    5. Nowadays, people are using GUI and WIMP features to interact with their computers because they are much more user-friendly than command-driven interfaces.=Active
    present continues

    Am I correct with these tenses?

    Is this still your homework?
