    Re: Grammar doubts

    Please note that a better title would have been It has been raining all night.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Yes — we can say 'It's been raining all night'.

    Please ask the unrelated questions in separate threads, with a title relevant to each.
