Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    They … anything for the past hour.

    • A.

      haven't been doing

    • B.

      hasn't been doing

    Correct Answer
    A. haven't been doing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "haven't been doing" because the sentence is in the present perfect continuous tense, which is used to talk about an action that started in the past and is still ongoing. The subject "they" is plural, so we use "haven't" as the auxiliary verb. "Been" is used to form the continuous aspect, and "doing" is the main verb in the present participle form.

  • 2. 

    It … hard.

    • A.

      has just been raining

    • B.

      has just been raining

    Correct Answer
    A. has just been raining
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has just been raining" because the phrase "has just been" is used to indicate an action that recently happened in the past. In this case, the action is "raining." So, the sentence implies that it was raining recently.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    He and his family… in poverty since their company went bankrupt.

    • A.

      have been living

    • B.

      has been living

    Correct Answer
    A. have been living
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have been living". This is because the sentence is referring to "he and his family" as the subject, which is a plural noun. When using the present perfect continuous tense, we use "have been" for plural subjects. Therefore, "have been living" is the correct form of the verb to match the subject and convey that they have been continuously living in poverty since their company went bankrupt.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    … here for over two hours?

    • A.

      Does she has been waiting

    • B.

      Has she been waiting

    Correct Answer
    B. Has she been waiting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Has she been waiting." This is the correct answer because it follows the correct structure for forming a question in the present perfect continuous tense. In this tense, we use "has/have + subject + been + verb-ing." Therefore, "Has she been waiting" is the correct question structure for asking if someone has been waiting for over two hours.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    My brother … about buying a used car from the dealer. Do you think it’s a good idea?

    • A.

      have been thinking

    • B.

      has been thinking

    Correct Answer
    B. has been thinking
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has been thinking". This is because the subject of the sentence is "my brother", which is singular. Therefore, the correct verb form to use is "has been thinking" instead of "have been thinking".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    I’m sleepy because I … all night.

    • A.

      have been staying up

    • B.

      has been staying up

    Correct Answer
    A. have been staying up
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have been staying up." This is because the phrase "I'm sleepy because" indicates a cause and effect relationship, suggesting that the speaker is currently sleepy due to a past action. The present perfect continuous tense "have been staying up" is used to express an action that started in the past and is still ongoing. Therefore, it implies that the speaker has been staying awake all night, leading to their current state of sleepiness.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Why … Mandarin classes for the last three weeks?

    • A.

      have you not been attending

    • B.

      have not you been attending

    Correct Answer
    A. have you not been attending
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have you not been attending." This is the correct form of the question because it follows the structure of a present perfect continuous question. The auxiliary verb "have" is used before the subject "you," followed by the negative form "not," and then the main verb "been attending" in the present participle form. This structure is used to ask about an action that started in the past, has been ongoing, and is still happening at the time of speaking.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    She … with the research team since January.

    • A.

      have been working

    • B.

      has been working

    Correct Answer
    B. has been working
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has been working". The verb "has been" is used to indicate an action that started in the past and is still ongoing in the present. In this case, the person has been working with the research team since January and continues to do so. The use of "have been working" would be incorrect as it is not the correct verb form for the pronoun "she".

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    How long … properly in the gym?

    • A.

      has he been working out

    • B.

      have he been working out

    Correct Answer
    A. has he been working out
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has he been working out." This is the correct form of the present perfect continuous tense to ask about the duration of someone's workout routine in the gym.
