    That is a very broad subject. Do you have specific questions? The sentence you questioned should have "passed the exam".

    Re: Tenses

    Note that there is no punctuation '..' in English. It's meaningless. We do have an ellipsis (...), but you can't use it just whenever you finish a sentence. Use a period to finish a sentence, except when it's a question; here you need a question mark.
    Capitalize 'I' and the first word in a sentence. Put quotes of some kind around your example sentences to differentiate them from your question.
    This is all as important as tenses.

    Have you studied tenses enough to know when to use which one? If not, this will be very confusing for you. However, taking your "to pass" as an example, it would go like this:

    He passed his exam = simple past.
    He has passed his exam = present perfect.
    He had passed his exam = past perfect.

    Did he pass his exam? = interrogative
    Has he passed his exam? = interrogative

    He did not passed his exam = simple past negative
    He has not passed his exam = present perfect negative
    He had not passed his exam = past perfect negative

    Please write some complete sentences using various past tenses so that we can see how much you understand.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
