Hi
I'm making a lot of mistakes in differentiating between the past participles and verb.
Is there any document or file which can help me overcome this thing.

Thanks in advance

Dear Suryangshu,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

My friend, there isn't really a one-size-fits-all rule for this. You need to develop intuition for the English language. The only way to do this is to develop rigorous habit of reading. See:
How to Improve Your GMAT Verbal Score

If you want to post some example sentences in which you confused verbs & participles, I would be happy to explain a little more about those sentences.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

Hi Suryangshu, indeed this does become challenging for regular verbs, whose simple past tense and past participle forms are the same.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses a very handy framework for distinguishing between Simple Past Tense and Past Participle, its application and examples in significant detail. If someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.
