Anonymous:Yes absolutely right.Both Do/Does comes in Present Tense and Did in Past Tense.But the Example quoted is not as per the grammar.
Do comes I,You, We and They.
Does comes with He,She and it.
Did in past tense.
Coming to the business:
Ex1: I didn't Knew it.
In the above example yout intention was to say,you do not know anything.'Knew' means you already know about it.Which is contradicting in the above Ex1.
So it should be
Correction: I didn't know it.
Ex2:I dosen't know it.
As I mentioned above,for I,do should come.
So it should be
Correction: I don't know it.
Anonymous:uday your example is incorrect.
only when the oration is affirmative puts the verb to him in past, and your wrote the passed verb in a negative oration.
interrogative form: DID you go to europe?
afirmative form: I WENT to europe
negative form: I didint GO to europe
Anonymous:Just want to ask about this...'sorry for what i did wrong' or 'sorry for what i do wrong'.Which one is correct ?
It's harder to think of a situation in which you'd say "Sorry for what I do wrong."
Remember that "I" is a capital letter.
