This verb form has a few specialities.

You don’t need to worry about the quantity of the subjects.

Usually we have articles for all subjects. It is because the number/quantity of the subject is always taken into consideration while deciding on the auxiliary verb or the verb to be used in the sentence. Fortunately, in this type of sentence where you use V2 to indicate a past action the count of the subject never alters the type of the verb or auxiliary verb. Therefore, you needn’t count them.

You don’t need to worry about the right auxiliary verb to use along with it.

Each auxiliary verb matches with a particular type of situation and a particular quantity of the subject. Here in the case of V2 you will never use an auxiliary verb to indicate simple past tense. Simple past tense is of two types: The type one uses auxiliary verb and the type two doesn’t use auxiliary verb.

Note: In the type which uses auxiliary verb unlike the one which we are discussing now, has V1 in the place of V2.
