    Welcome!
    But you are not off to a good start. If you want people to answer your questions, use proper English in asking them. And what do you mean by "past" and "past parti"? Don't be lazy.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***ranousha, good afternoon. (1) Every verb has three parts . (2) For example, "eat" is base form; "ate" is past form; "eaten" is past participle. (3) So we say, "I ate an apple yesterday." (3) "I have eaten five apples this month." You use the past participle when you use the auxiliary verb "have." "Tom has eaten ten oranges this month." We say "has eaten" because the month has not ended. If we were talking about last month, we would say, "Tom ate six apples last month." Many verbs have the same "past" and "past participle." For example: I walk every day (base form), I walkED yesterday, I have walkED 20 miles this month. (This month is not finished yet. I may walk some more miles this month.) If you have other questions, just post them here. Teachers and non-teachers are happy to help you. Thank you.
