    Re: Sentence formation

    Thrown is the past participle of "to throw". You want the simple past, which is threw.

    Please help (no full stop here) me. How to can I rephrase it?
    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note my corrections above. As GoesStation already pointed out, "I thrown" is grammatically incorrect. The simple past is "I threw", the present perfect is "I have thrown" and the past perfect is "I had thrown".

    We don't start questions with "How to ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
