    I think you will get a better response if you:

    1) Use the word "please"
    2) Do not say "I repeat..." We heard you the first time
    3) Check the spelling of "definition"

    Re: Tense

    Here's one for present tense: Present tense expresses an unchanging, repeated, or reoccurring action or situation.

    Here's one for present continuous:
    Present progressive tense describes an ongoing action that is happening at the same time the statement is written. This tense is formed by using am/is/are with the verb form ending in -ing.

    I took these from here: Verb Tenses

    Does the definition alone really help you?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    4) Don't unnecessarily restrict the answer: "I repeat only defination."
    Some potential answerers might be put off through fear of giving what you might call examples or explanations, rather than definitions.
