The Tenses of a verb are the various forms that indicate primarily relationship of events in time.
Read the following sentences:
1. He is singing a song.
2. He sang a song in the party.
3. He will sing a song in the party.
All the three sentences refer to the act of ‘singing’ at three different points of time.
Sentence (1) refers to an action which takes place now at Present.
Sentence (2) refers to an action which took place sonic time ago in the Past.
Sentence (3) refers to an action which will take place in Future.
Hence, we conclude the Tense Form of a verb shows when an action takes place. or a state. or a thing exists. There are three Tenses:
(1) Present Tense,
(2) Past Tense,
(3) Future Tense.
