    Question borrow, lend, keep

    we have borrowed the book for one week.
    we have kept the book for one week.
    we have lend it to you for one week.
    which is right?
    I think mabye we only can say ,"we borrowed the book one week ago."
    we can't say,:we have borrowed the book for one week." right?

    You can say: " We have borrowed the book for a week. We have kept it for a week. We have lent it to you for a week."
