    Have been given one minute

    Hi there!

    I wonder if the verb tense in this sentence is correct.


    He complained that, have been given one minute only, made the task difficult for him.


    Cheers,
    Tito

    Write He complained that having only one minute (available) made the task difficult for him.

    Note that my revision contains no commas.
