    grammar

    I have read some grammar books, but still get some points to clarify as follow.

    1) Which of the following sentance is correct and may I know why?

    a. I went to the library before I have come to work.
    a. I went to the library before I had come to work.


    2) Grammatically, shall the form of 'present perfect tense happen later than those of 'past tense'?


    3) Which of the following sentance is correct and may I know why ?

    a. I went to the library before I have come to work.
    b. I have gone to the library before I came to work.

    4) Grammatically, what is the difference between ' the time of the incident happening' of the form of 'present perfect tense', 'past tense' and 'past perfect tense'?

    Could you make one example with all the above forms of tenses in one sentence?


    5) Which of the following sentance is correct? May I know the reason?

    a. Please find all details as follows.
    b. Please find all details as follow.


    6) Someone said 'kindly' in the following sentence should be omitted as it is in the same meaning of 'please', or the other way round. Is it correct?

    a. Would you please kindly do this for me?
    b. Please kindly put this away for me?


    Tks.
