Hi janani20,

The correct form would be:

There are many Europeans working in the factory shocked by seeing them.

The sentence is entirely in the present, though it looks like it is in the past. This is because it is an example of ellipsis - missing out words which are not necessary. If we put these words back in then you will see that what you thought was a past form is in fact a present passive form:

There are many Europeans (who are) working in the factory (who are) shocked by seeing them.

I hope that helps to clarify it for you. You can find more information on these structures here.

Please guide me how to solve this exercise. I can't understand this unit.

Hello ekamran22,

You need to complete the sentence starting with either 'you' or 'they' so that they mean the same as the first sentence. There is an example given in the instructions, but you can also see the answers by clicking 'Finish'. This will let you see the correct answer for one or two questions and then you can refresh the page and try the exercise yourself.

Hello to everyone,

I tried to understand meaning of 5/6 task but I did succeed. I do not understand what "a charge" means in this sentence. I also tried with your dictionary but it was not succesful.

Thank you in advance!
