Present Indefinite Tense is a grammatical tense used to describe actions that are happening right now or regularly occurring actions. It is one of the simplest and most commonly used tenses in the English language. In this tense, the action is expressed as a simple statement of fact, without any indication of whether the action is ongoing or completed.
How to make Present Indefinite Tense:
Subject + Verb(+-s/es for he, she, it)+Rest of the Sentence.
For third person singular subjects (he, she, it), you add -s to regular verbs and -es to verbs ending in -s, -x, -z, -sh, and -ch. This modification does not apply to I, you, we, they, or plural subjects.
- I play tennis.
- She works in an office.
Subject+ Do not/Does not+ Verb+ Rest of the Sentence.
- I do not play chess.
- He does not eat meat.
- Do you like ice cream?
- Does she know the answer?
