    PRESENT/PAST PARAGRAPH

    Can we use both past and present tenses in one paragraph?
    Please expatiate more on the above.

    Yes, indeed.

    Could you narrow down your query a bit, please? It looks like homework to me, though.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    "Expatiate" is a very uncommon word.

    You can use every English tense in one sentence as long as it makes sense. It would be even more common in a paragraph.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
