Answer:

see below

Explanation:

"Has verb+ed" is used to conjugate verbs in the present perfect tense (third person singular).

ex:

Carmen has done her project.
She has reviewed for her exams next week.
Rick has played basketball.

"Had verb+ed" is used to conjugate verbs in the past perfect tense.(singular or plural, first, second, third person).

ex:

We had done our research before we made a conclusion.
I had danced in her debut party.
She had prepared dinner for the family.
They had enjoyed their vacation.
You had misinterpreted my words.

Answer:

Indefinite time fact has "has" function to third person singular number of verb agreement.

Explanation:

Like, he has eaten an apple.
It doesn't say when he ate the apple.

This is indefinite present perfect tense.

If we say--he ate an apple at night.

It is a complete action on a specific time that is called past simple.

But present perfect doesn't indicate specific time and completion at all. There are more rules to here.

However, in the past an unspecific time when two facts occur that is past perfect tense, mind it past perfect is not happen only one fact but relation to two facts.

Like, The patient had died before the ambulance come.

Here, the first fact is always past perfect tense and we use "had" with past participle verb form.

Hope, these will do.
