I have no idea what you are asking. What type of sentence are you asking about?
Student or Learner
I always have a tough time with a particular kind of sentence.When i registered in this forum,in my profile page in the subtitle Recent visitors it was written
'The page has had 0 visitors'.What does this mean?Has had together?What's the meaning of this?How can i make this type of sentence?
I have had a car since i was seven.This page has had 0 visitors.
This type of sentence when has and had or have and had comes together.
But how we make such sentences?When we say such sentence?Please explain.
Does it mean we replace been having with had?I mean as per conventional way we would have said
This page has been having 0 visitors.But we are saying this page has had 0 visitors .So,we replaced been having with had,right?
"This page has been having 0 visitors."
This is not natural in most varieties of English. (I am aware that it would be fairly common in Indian (South Asian) English.)

Most books tell us that the present perfect (have / has + past participle) is used when we want to refer to something that started in the past and still touches the present.
Let's say that I became a member in November, 2014. Let's say that you went to my profile in January, 2015. Let's say that you were the first person to go to my profile. So you would see a notice that said: "This page has had 0 visitors." After you leave, then the notice will change to: "This page has had 1 visitor [you!]." Then if another person goes to my profile, the notice will change to: "This page has had," well, you can finish that sentence.
A very nice member named Cindrella has started a thread entitled "A particular kind of sentence." So far (up to the time of my typing), Cindrella's thread has had 178 views. And soon it will have more.
Let's say that we are in an ice cream parlor now. We walked in at 10 a.m. I ordered one cream cone. I ate it and ordered another ice cream cone. I ate it and ordered another ice cream cone.
Let's say that it is now 10:30 a.m. and that I want to order another ice cream cone. You would probably say, "James, stop it! You have already had 3 ice cream cones. That is enough for today!"
'This page has been having ten visitors.'
Does it mean that ten people have been reading this page for a period of time?
