    present tense, past tense, past participal

    Can someone explain the past participal for me please.

    When would this be used?

    Example : begin ; began ; begun

    Eample : see ; saw ; seen

    Have you saw John ? ( for example)

    have you seen John? .................

    I saw him two minutes ago.

    I seen him two minutes ago.

    Is one of these sentences wrong and why?

    Thanks in advance.
