    used to


    I would like to know which verb form doesn't exist in the present with the same meaning in these sentences:

    -the warehouse was used for storing small objects
    -julio was used to handling these delicate objects
    -the objects used to fly off the shelves.
    -certain objects would do this much more frequently than others.

    Thank you for your help because I don't understand the question!

    I don't understand what you are trying to ask either.

    the objects used to fly off the shelves.- This form talks about a past habit and has no present form- you'd have to say 'the obects fly off the shelves
