Present Perfect Exercises PDF, Use the present perfect tense to talk about happenings in the past that explain or affect the present. The verbs have and has are used as “helping” or auxiliary verbs to form the present perfect tense.

To form the present perfect tense join have or has to the past participle of the verb:

have     +      past participle

has       +      past participle

The past participle of a regular verb usually ends in -ed, just like the simple past tense. But the past participles of irregular verbs don’t follow this rule.
