    Question During for and since

    Hello, teachers
    I've just done my handout in during, for and since and when I saw answer sheet, I have had some questions.

    Firstly, in Q6 : She's been working there since the spring
    a. She's probably going to change her job --- right
    b. She's probadly going to stay in her job --- wrong
    I thought in this case, a. or b. is not wrong; it's not clear.

    and Q11 - She hasn't phoned me for the last three weeks
    a. The time period is unfinished
    b. The last three weeks is a finished period of time
    I dont' understand what these two answers mean

    Thank you for reading my question

    Re: During for and since

    Q6...You are correct.
    Q11...The question is asking you whether "for the last three weeks" is an unfinished (= continung) period of time or a finished (= in the past) period of time. Do you understand it now? If you do, how would you answer it?
