Past Perfect Tense Advanced Level

This tense is used to show an earlier action than the other.It means that if two actions happened in the past ,it may be necessary to show which action took place earlier than the other. To show the first action, we use Past Perfect Tense and to show the second action we use Past Simple tense.
e.g. The patient had died before the doctor came.
The Patient had died (First Action)
The doctor came (Second Action)

e.g. My parents had already eaten by the time I got home.
Parents ate (First Action)

So, remeber that Past Perfect usually comes with Past Simple.
