i wish somebody would help me, here are my issues with English language.


1. has, have, had.
i always have trouble regarding which one to use.

eg.
a) he has a car
b) he had a car
c) he have a car
d) he is having a car
e) he is going to have a car

i assume the meaning as follow, please correct me.
a) has - no such usage?
b) had - already got car, i only described him as, having a car
c) have - how this one is different from b?
d) he got no car now, but in the process to got a car?
e) no car now, "going to" means future anytime soon, he will has/have a car.

confuse Confused

i confuse,
i dont understand why english put time concept in every verb? does greek, sanskirt or other older languages base on such concept too?

run = present
ran = past

i run,
i ran,
i has run,
i has ran,
i have run,
i have ran,
i had run,
i had ran,
then we bring in 'ing', sort of continuos.
i has running
i had running
i have running

totally confusing. Or
totally confuse. Or
totally confused.

d) is a slightly tricky one; it could mean either present or future tense. The present case is the same as (a) [but "he" is in the process of getting the car] and the future case is the same as "he will have a car".

e) is another future tense the same as "he will have a car"
