    Can somebody help me correct these sentences?

    1) In reponse to your question or in respond to your question.

    2) The machine has eaten/ate my money or my atm card.

    3) Claim experience from driving in USA or claim driving experiece in USA.

    3) Claim experience from driving in USA or claim driving experiece in USA.

    "Claim (to have) experience of driving in the USA" is clearer.

    Do you mean it is also right to say that The machine has ate my money?

    If so, is this a separate example, or there is a rule here according to which past tense can be used after have or has, in right circumstances?

    Thanks

    1) In response to your question

    2) The machine has eaten or the machine ate

    With the last sentence it isn't clear what you are trying to say.

    No, "has eaten" or "ate".
