V2 Past Simple

The verb ‘hold’ becomes V2 if Past Tense is mentioned in the sentence. Because it is one of the irregular verbs, in V2, the word changes entirely instead of taking a piece of jewelry. So our story becomes ‘held.’ Each subject has the same use, which makes learning easier. In other words, when the verb is in its second form, there is no distinction between he / she / it.
