A verb may be finite or non-finite. A verb is said to be finite when tense and number affect it. It’s non-finite when tense or number doesn’t affect it.

The verb to collect doesn’t respond to change in number or tense. So, it’s a non-finite verb.

The present participle is a non-finite verb. It is used to make continuous tenses.
