    Question Present Perfect Simple or Continuous

    Hi
    I am doing self study to get my ielts certificate.
    I know the differences between present perfect simple and continuous but while I was doing an exercise related to this topic I wasn't sure about a part of it.

    It's a fill in the blanks question and has 3 verbs. (make, write, and play)
    I have to use present perfect simple or continuous form of those verbs.

    "Lead singer Sal and lead guitarist Miranda ........1........ together since secondary school.
    Sal ........2.......... music since she was six but she ...........3.......... songs since 2003."

    My answer is :
    1. have been playing
    2. has been making
    3. has written

    Re: Present Perfect Simple or Continuous

    1 and 2 are fine. For 3, I would use "has been writing".
