    "use" or usage"

    Hi all, I am confused about using use and usage. Can anyone tell which of the following sentences is correct?

    A.) "The use of Present Tense"
    B.) "The usage of Present Tense."

    I think B is correct.

    Those are not sentences; they are noun phrases.

    Re: "use" or usage"

    Both your phrases need 'the' before 'present tense' (which should not be capitalised).
