Please tell me which is right, I want to say that this lady is the most beautiful one that I have ever seen.

I want to say that this lady is the most beautiful one that I have ever seen.

I want to say that this lady is the most beautiful one I have ever seen.

I never saw such a beautiful lady.

I never seen such a beautiful lady. (well, I really wonder, there should be a "have" between "I" and "never",right?)

Hi, pal

All depends on the context. If you are talking about a terminated action then: They saw the boys eating apples.

But, if you want to express an action that started in the past and continues up to the present, or which effect are relevant in the present, then you say: They've seen the boys eating apples.

See you

Sorry but that explanation is not correct.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
"Seen" is the past participle and requires the use of some form of the auxiliary verb "to have." "Saw" is the past imperfect and stands on its own. How you would use the various possible tenses might be like this:

If you want to describe how you felt at the moment when you first saw the beautiful girl, you would say "I had never seen such a beautiful girl in my life." If you use "had" as the auxiliary verb, you are definitely referring to an experience in the past.

If you want to describe how you felt then and still feel now, you would say, "I have never seen such a beautiful girl in my life." In other words, you hadn't seen such a beautiful girl at that moment of first sighting and you still haven't seen anyone more beautiful. Also, if you just (right now) saw such a person, you could also say, "I have never seen such a beautiful girl in my life."

You could also say, "I never saw such a beautiful girl in my life," which refers to an experience in the past, but is just a bit less precise as to when you had that experience as "I had never seen such a beautiful girl in my life." "I had never seen" is more specific to a particular moment in time than "I never saw". You could also use "I never saw" shortly after seeing the beautiful girl if someone asked, "Do you think she is beautiful?" Then, "Oh, yes, I never saw such a beautiful girl before!"

At least, that's my view of it.
I have never seen such a beautiful girl in my life.
I never saw twin towers is correct because there is no twin towers they were destroyed so if want to see it's not possible.
I have never seen white house is correct still there is white house if you want to see you can see it .
One more example:
I never used plastic plates. This means in future also you would not use for any reason may be you don't like using plastic plates, may be you have decided I am not going to use .
I have never used plastic plates means you not used yet may be you could use in future if you want
