And tell me the difference thank you

Hi Hadiamini20,

"Reached" would be in past simple tense. Verb in past simple tense requires a noun. For example:
Incorrect: samsung had become the market leader with sales reached 450 million units....
Correct: samsung had become the market leader. Its sales reached 450 million units....

-Ing verbs can take many forms. You can refer to these threads:
