    Re: Past tense and past participle

    Isn't rained?

    Isn't it rained?

    Yes, in both cases it is rained.

    I assume you meant "Isn't it 'rained'"?

    I don't know anybody else who asks 'Isn't rained?' or 'Isn't it rained?'

    Re: Past tense and past participle

    What is the past tense of "rain"? Isn't is "rained"?

    I think that's what the suggested question was.

    The answer is yes, the past tense of "rain" is "rained".

    It rains.
    It is raining.
    It rained.
    It has rained.
    It had rained.
    It will rain.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
