    ******* NOT A TEACHER **********

    Hello.

    (1) Yes, these words can be very confusing.

    (2) Kindly remember that to pass is a verb:

    Passed = the past and the past participle:

    When I take a walk, I always pass (= go by) a library.

    Yesterday when I took my walk, I passed (= went by) a car accident.

    Mona is a good student in your class. She always passes

    (= gets good marks on) the examinations.

    Many visitors have passed (= entered) through the gates at Disneyland.

    (3) Remember that past is often a preposition:

    When I take a walk, I always walk past (= in front of)

    a library.

    The bus went past me without stopping. Now I have to wait for

    another bus!!!

    6:30 p.m. = half past (= after) six.

    Thank you.
