    make + past participle

    can "past participal" be used with "make" ? as i know "make" is used with
    simple form and adjective. format is, make + noun\pronoun + infinitive (without "to")

    Hi, akshay vyas!

    Well...I know these expressions using 'make + object + past participle':

    make oneself understood
    make oneself heard

    "oneself" is a pronoun, so you're almost there!
    "How do I make him understand?"
