Sree is a really good GMAT tutor in terms of motivation, and he knows his material. Thanks!
Our Graz GMAT instructor has been teaching test prep classes to students for several years who have succeeded in studying around the world, from the U.S. to Sweden to Australia. In addition, she also works as an editor and translator and thanks to several years of experience in the U.S., she also specializes in editing and copy-editing English-language texts. A graduate of Barnard College, a women’s college affiliated with Columbia University in New York City, our Graz GMAT instructor went on to receive her M.A. in international relations at the Donau-University in Krems, Austria.
The past participle ends in -(e)d or -t in most verbs. A few archaic strong forms remain; these are verbs which make the past tense by changing the internal vowel, e.g., write, wrote; see, saw. These have participles that end in -(e)n, e.g. written, seen. The past participle forms a compound tense (perfect) with the addition of the verb to have. This denotes the perfected or completed action:
I have decided to take the GMAT.
It is useful to be able to recognize tenses in the Sentence Correction section, because another of the most common errors on the GMAT is changing tenses needlessly in the middle of a sentence. Make sure that the answer you select does not have a change of tense which is not justified by the meaning of the sentence.
Used adjectivally, however, the past participle may also form a predicate with the verb to be.
I have helped you.
You are helped.
As with the present participle, the past participle must be related to its proper noun when forming a modifying phrase:
Embarrassed by her faux pas, the GMAT instructor left the room.
If the participle is misrelated (misplaced), comic results will occur:
Wrong: Covered with aluminum foil, the GMAT instructor popped the lasagna into the oven.
(Here it is the GMAT instructor, and not the lasagna, that is covered with aluminum foil)
