Here ‘Thud’ means to fall with a low dull sound.

Here is a list of words related to sounds. Say what these words mean. Refer to a dictionary.

I. Read the following sentences from the story.

We found we had little to carry. Some thief had removed most of my things. In the above two sentences, the first one is in the simple past (found) and the second sentence is in the past perfect tense (had removed).

As you can see, the action which occurred earlier is expressed in the past perfect tense, whereas the action which occurred later, is expressed in the simple past tense.

Here are a few more examples.

1. Sujatha had arrived at the station before the train came.

2. The doctor arrived after the patient had died.

3: I bought the ticket as soon as I boarded the bus.

When two actions occur nearly simultaneously in the past, both are expressed in the simple past tense (exceptional case).

Now combine the following pair of sentences using the past perfect and the simple past. (use after, before or when as linkers)
