    Re: What is the difference

    Welcome to the forum, Deyaaeldeen.

    Please write a full sentence, telling us what 'it' is and what length of time '####' represents.

    I have changed your thread title. Titles should include some/all of the words/phrases you are asking us about, and should be unique to their thread.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The middle one is wrong. With the other two, the question is whether it had finished or not. If unfinished, use the first.
