    angering

    would be good if you understand the issue before getting angry sir.


    whenever we use verb +ing, does it mean it is Present continuous tense? (like getting in above sentence) or it would be always auxiliary verb and verb+ing to make it present continuous.

    Can we write above sentence as:

    would be good if you understand the issue before got angry sir.

    I am not a teacher.

    I would write that as, 'It would be good if you understood the issue before getting angry, sir.'

    You could also say It would be good if you understood the issue before you got angry, sir. However, before got is wrong.
