Answer:

First, a thesis statement is a concise summary of the main point or claim of the essay, research paper. By definition, a thesis is an argument. To present research that is fair, you must look a both sides of the argument and allow the reader to reach his or her own conclusion. I other words, state and argument and then refute it. Here is an example: "The consumption of more than 50 grams of sodium can can raise the diastolic blood pressure level by 10 points, leading to health issues. However, a 2019 experiment performed by Smith (2021) revealed that consuming high amounts of sodium early in the day while doubling the intake of water has minimal affects on both diastolic and systolic numbers.

Answer:

Participles can be used in both past and present tenses, the difference being how they are written. Consider the verb "run." Remember that the present participle always ends with "ing." In this case: "I am running around the block." You can also use "run" as a modifier, or, adjective-like participle. "The running water caused the bucket to overflow." "Running" here modifies the noun "water" by telling you what the water is doing.
