    Default Present perfect

    Hi, I had a silly question to ask. I like to know if we can use 'Past' like past few years in present perfect.
    e.g. "I've lived in this town for the past four years." or "I've been waiting for you for the past few hours."
    Thanks in advanced.

    Yes, you can. It's normal to say that.

    Of course, we can use this time expression in the present perfect. I guarantee.
