    Question What is the tense?

    Hello,

    What are the tenses in the following sentences?
    I'll type my guess between (), please correct me if I am wrong.

    1. At the station I realised Iíd left the tickets at home. (Past simple, Past Perfect)
    2. Iíve been in Dhaka since last week. (Present Perfect)
    3. As soon as he got home, he rang his parents.(Past Simple, Past Simple)
    4. By the end of 2006, Iíll have completed my research.( Future Perfect)
    5. Johnís been working very long hours at work.(Present Perfect Progressive)
    6. I think Iíll go to India next month.(Present Simple, Future Simple)

    For sentences 1,3,6 I typed two tenses because there are two main verbs in each sentence, but I don't know if that's correct or not.

    Thanks in advance.
