You use Present Perfect tense if an action has started in the past and has a result in the present time

Past Perfect = Subject + has/have + past participle of the verb

*past participle = usually ending -ed, -d, -t, -en, or -n
*example: dreamt, went

for example:

  • I have washed the car. It is now clean and shiny.
  • My sisters have been to Canada for three times. They like it very much.

Any action started at the time of past and just now finished, It's present perfect tense.Structure :Subject +have/has+third form of verb+objects. Ex.I have finished my homework.
