    Exclamation Are these two questions correct regarding "would rather"?

    Hi there,

    Are these two questions correct regarding "would rather"?

    1. Would you rather have stayed home than/or have gone to the movies?

    2. Wouldn't you rather have studied math than have wathched TV?

    Apart from the typo in' wathched', they are OK.

    Re: Are these two questions correct regarding "would rather"?

    I'd appreciate it if you answer this question as well:

    In the progressive form of "would rather" we can either use the second "be" or drop it. For example,

    "Would you rather be staying at home than/or (be) going to the movies?"

    I wonder if the same is true regarding "have" in the following sentence in its past tense (form). Can we drop "have"?

    "Would you rather have stayed at home than/or (have) gone to the movies?"
