    2) I'm used to using a pen / Or I get used to using a pen.
    3) I get used to getting him to take medicine.
    ============================================
    4) Does he have to have a car ?
    5) He has to have a car.
    6) Did he have to have a car ? yes, He had to have a car./ No, He didn't have to have a car.
    7) Had he have a car ? No, He hadn't had a car.
    8) I had been having a car.
    9) I had been being a doctor.
    10) I'm being a doctor.

    Re: Repeated words in sentences

    Thank you Bhai
    1) I used to use a pen in writing / Or I used a pen. Both are correct.
    2) I'm used to using a pen / Or I get used to using a pen. Both are correct
    What's the difference between sentence #1 and #2 ?
    I think #1 is Simple past and #2 is continues past
    Am i right ?
    7) Had he have a car ? No, He hadn't had a car
    Can I correct it " Had He had a car ? " ?


    I have to make mistakes to learn
    Thanks

    1) is simple past.
    2) Is present.
    Can I correct it " Had He had a car ? " ? Yes, it means the same as "if he had had a car.

    Re: Repeated words in sentences

    [QUOTE=bhaisahab;505573]What's the difference between sentence #1 and #2 ?
    I think #1 is Simple past and #2 is continues past

    1) I used to use a pen for writing / Or I used a pen. Both are correct.
    2) I'm used to using a pen / Or I am getting used to using a pen. Both are correct " ?
    Can I correct it " Had He had a car. Yes, it means the same as, "if he had had a car.

    I didn't do a very good job of answering your questions, let's try again;

    1) These are simple past.
    2) These are present continuous.
    Please note my alterations in bold.

    11) I will have been being a doctor.
    Can i repeat this sentence using {[v.to be]+Going to+[Inf.]} ? How ?

    "I am going to become a doctor".

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Re: Repeated words in sentences

    Thank you Mr.Bhaisahab.:)



    2) I'm used to using a pen / Or I am getting used to using a pen. Both are correct " ?
    But What about [get used to+(v-ing)]
    If i said "I get used to using a pen" >>> What's the difference ?

    Thank you once more :):):)

    "I get used to using a pen" is ok, it means "I become used to using a pen", it's an outdated construction but it's not wrong. If you write it like that then it is present simple, not continuous.
