Answer:

It is just burst.

Explanation:

The verb burst means "the action of something breaking open from pressure inside".

"Burst" is already in the past form. "Bursts" is the present form.

  • The car's tire burst yesterday.
  • Unable to hold in her excitement, Lydia burst out with loud shouts.

A common mistake is to use the word "bursted" for the past tense, but this is not an actual word. So always use the word "burst" as the past tense.
