    are the following sentences correct?

    a) He has put on weight,grown a beard and changed.
    b) He has put on weight,has grown a beard and has changed.

    a) They have been sitting,talking and having a good time.
    b) They have been sitting,have been talking and have been having a good time.

    I think the two 'a' examples are correct but is it possible to use 'has/have' and 'has/have been' before every verb in a sentence?

    Re: are the following sentences correct?

    You are correct.

    You could use the B versions but people may look at you a little strangely.

    The A versions are the most natural way of saying this.
