I made him do it

Certain verbs must be in the present tense after specific verbs such as see, make, and let.

The following are examples of the above rules.

1 I see him jog in the morning every day.

2 She saw me buy a book at the bookstore yesterday.

3 The teacher makes us line up outside the classroom before school dismisses.

4 I made him do it himself.

5 The guard usually let me enter the condominium without a pass.

6 I let my younger brother walk by himself.

[Words in italics are in the present tense.]
