Past perfect tense examples in Hindi to English translation

The past perfect tense in Hindi is often formed using the past tense of the auxiliary verb "होना" (hona) along with the past participle of the main verb. Here are some examples along with their English translations:

1. मैंने खाना खा लिया था।

   English: I had eaten.

2. तुमने पहले वहाँ जा चुके थे।

   English: You had already gone there.

3. हमने उसे पहले ही देख लिया था।

   English: We had already seen him.

4. तुमने अपना काम कर लिया था।

   English: You had completed your work.

5. उसने पहले ही सच बता दिया था।

   English: He had already told the truth.

6. हम वहाँ पहुँच चुके थे जब वह आया।

   English: We had already arrived there when he came.

In these examples, the past perfect tense is used to express an action that was completed before another action in the past. The past participle (like खा लिया था, जा चुके थे, देख लिया था) and the past tense of the auxiliary verb "होना" (hona) together convey the idea of completion before a specific time or event in the past. This tense is useful for establishing the chronological order of events in storytelling or narration.
