    We do not answer things that look like assignments; we will discuss answers and comment, but we don't provide the answers.

    this is not assignment. This is my sentences I tried to use past tense, but I was confused with past progress, and perfect.
    So I tried to wrote several sentences, my question is if you are the reader and when you read all the sample are they same meaning? If they are not same meaning how do I notice it?
    Are the tenses are correct?
