When do we use है and other similar verbs?

है (along with its other forms like हैं, हूं) is the present tense form of the verb 'to be' and is used to indicate that a sentence is in the present tense.

When you have a negative sentence (containing नहीं) the use of है is optional.

The only exception is when the sentence does not consist of any other verb (eg: हम बुरे नहीं हैं - 'we are not bad' should compulsorily have a हैं)
