As a rule, verbs denoting a state rather than an act have no continuous forms, like understand, know, believe, like, love, belong, prefer, consist, mean, hear, see, etc.

Did you go to school yesterday?
Did you went to school yesterday?
I did not go to school yesterday.
I did not went to school yesterday.

Use the present infinitive without to, not the past tense after the auxiliary did.

the answer to a question beginning with did is always in the past tense: Did you see the picture? -Yes, I saw the picture; or Yes, I did.

Next
I have seen the Parthenon of Athens.
I saw the Parthenon of Athens.

If we are speaking of the result of a past action rather than of the action we must use the present perfect tense. When somebody says, I have seen Panthenon, he or she is not thinking so much of the past act of seeing it, as the present result of that past action.

Next
The train already left before I arrived.
The train had already left before I arrived.

Use the past perfect when the time of one past action is more past than that of another. Put the action which was completed first in the past perfect and the second action in the past tense.

Don't use the present tense and the past perfect in the same sentence. It would be incorrect to say: My brother says that he had not gone to the cinema last night.

Next
Ben thought he can win the prize.
Ben thought he could win the prize.

Can changes to could in subordinate clauses, when the verb in the main clause is in the past simple tense.
