    This is not the verb to see, but the verb to saw.

    Re: Saw\___\Sawn

    We are talking about the simple past of 'saw', so the right answer is 'sawed' because 'sawn' is a past participle. :)

    Jesus was a carpenter. The blind man approached him, picked up his hammer, and saw. (Lesson about the Oxford comma).
