    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections to your post above, marked in red. In your final test, you must ensure that you use correct capitalisation and punctuation, and write in full sentences.

    Do you understand the difference at all? If not, it might be a little too late for someone to explain the whole thing (including usage) to you if your test is tomorrow.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I know that present perfect used for 2 reasons eathier to focuse on the event or to talk about something true till today .
    While past simple used to focuse on the time or to talk about something has finished .
    but Iam not pretty sure of this !
    one more question:can you see our doctor practicing quiz
