    having done!

    ex: 1.Having found a hotel, we looked for someplace to have dinner. (possitive sentence)
    2. Not having a car, she finds it difficult o get around. (negative sentence)


    is it right that when you talking about a positive sentence, it always mean you are talking about the past while negative sentence mean present?( when you using "having done")

    Re: having done!

    2. Not having a car, she finds it difficult o get around. (negative sentence)
    this sentence is in present form,if you want to prefer to the past,you should say "Not having had a car,she found it difficult to get around"

    about your question,my answer is "no" ,both positive and negative sentences have past and present meanings,it's up to the context...

    my 2 cents!!!
