The "have" or "has" exercise provides a sentence that the student must complete by choosing the word "have" or "has" to form the verb. The present perfect tense uses "have" if the subject is "I," "you," "we," "they" or a plural noun. It uses "has" if the subject is "he," "she," "it" or a singular noun.

The questions exercise provides a subject, verb and direct object. The student then uses and modifies those words as necessary to write a question in the present perfect simple form. For example, if the subject, verb and direct object are "you," "ask" and "question," the student completes the exercise with, "Have you asked the question?"

Exercises for making the positive and negative present perfect work similarly to the questions exercise, as the exercise provides the subject, verb and direct object that the student uses to form a sentence. For example, if the words are "I," "study" and "Spanish," the student completes the exercise for the positive present perfect with "I have studied Spanish." The negative present perfect for the same words is "I have not studied Spanish."
