    4 - "It's been two years since I saw tom" or "It has been two years since I saw tom"?
    They are both correct. The only difference is that the first one uses the contraction "It's".

    None of your writing is correct until you follow the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (English, London, Shakespeare, Sydney Opera House).

    Don't capitalise random words for no reason as you did in your posts so far.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
