    present perfect vs present continuous

    Please help me to choose the correct option. I think the both options are correct because I have seen in many contexts where they are interchanged.
    Can I mix up the present perfect and present continuouse tense as in the above sentence?. Or it should be "were" or "have been". Please help me.

    Re: present perfect vs present continuous

    .
    Your sentence contains the present perfect and the simple present, and the sentence is fine. He 'has seen' in the indeterminate past, and the 'contexts' remain interchanged now.
