    Complete the sentences with the correct present perfect or past simple form of the verbs given.  ……………………… you ……………………… (have) that headache for a long time? You should see a doctor about it. 

    Correct Answer
    Have you had, have had
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Have you had, have had." In this sentence, we are talking about a headache that has been going on for a long time. The present perfect form "have had" is used to show that the action started in the past and is still happening or has just recently stopped.
