ELC-10th Day - DaswaaN Din

10th Day - We shall learn about Past Continuous Tense. Sentences of continuing actions at a particular time in past, come under Past Continuous Tense.

Past Continuous Tense

It is used to express an ongoing nature or continued action till a certain time in past. It is used to talk about a continuing action at a particular time in the past.

In Past Continuous Tense, time may come. Like in Present Continuous Tense, if starting time of the action is given and action remain continued, the Past Continuous Tense becomes Past Perfect Continuous Tense.

e.g. I was driving a car - Past Continuous Tense.
After adding continuous time 'for two hour' it becomes Past Perfect Continuous and will be translated as
I had been driving a car for two hours.



पास्ट कन्टीन्युअस टेन्स में वाक्य के अंत में 'रहा था', 'रही थी', 'रहे थे' का प्रयोग होता है ।

नोट: ऐसे वाक्यों में समय का प्रयोग तो हो सकता है लेकिन लगातार समय का प्रयोग नही होना चाहिेए । अगर लगातार समय का प्रयोग हो तो उन वाक्यों को पास्ट पर्फेक्ट कन्टीन्युअस कहते हैं ।

जैसे - वह सो रहा था - पास्ट कन्टीन्युअस टेन्स ।
वह दो घंटे से सो रहा था - पास्ट पर्फेक्ट कन्टीन्युअस टेन्स (क्योंकि यहां लगातार समय 'दो घंटे से' का प्रयोग हुआ है) ।
