    have efficiently

    Which is correct:

    1-They do not charge much for the services that they have efficiently provided and continue to provide.

    2-They do not charge much for the services that they efficiently have provided and continue to provide.

    In '1' 'efficiently seems to modify 'have provided' and not 'continue to provide'. And yet '1' seems more natural.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    I would read "efficiently" in the first sentence as applying to both past and present. The word "continue" strongly implies that. I prefer the first.
