    Uses of the present perfect need looking at

    I need some help checking these answers, can anyone provide assistance please. I have to look at the following uses of the PRESENT PERFECT and select one of two functions. I must focus on the bold uppercase print.

    1. He HAS LIVED in Brighton for five years.
    2. VE JUST met him.
    3. We HAVE always WANTED to see Paris.
    4. Claire HAS GRADUATED from college
    5. Alan HAS FELT the same way before.

    a.A state, event or habit which began in the past and continues
    b. A past event which has some significance in the present

    If I am not mistaken Tony all your posts are questions from an online TEFL course, you really shouldn't, as jlinger has said, expect us to do your work for you. How would that help your understanding?

    Hi Tony, here is The French,

    It's not hard to answer to your questions, perhaps you can try by yourself and after I think English teacher help you for correction.

    Have a nice day.

    It's nothing personal, tony. Everyone who posts here wanting their homework done has a reason. It's just not a homework answering site.

    Re: Uses of the present perfect need looking at

    Hi mate thanks for the reply, and trust me I understand fully. I have however had a go and Iím in the process of putting them up on the board to ask if people can check my answers to see if Iím correct and if not than to guide me in the right direction. Perhaps you can take a look??

    Kind regards tony

    Hello, it's The French,
