Student or Learner
I would like to know the difference between these sentences:
1. It has been increasing. (Present Perfect Continuous)
2. It has been increased. (??????)
3. It is increasing. (Present Perfect)
4 It has increased.
For example, I can't figure out the difference between 1, 2 and 4. I can't figure out what difference makes "been". It seems redundant in 2 for example.
Please help. Thank you.
In the case:
The rain has been increasing.
Does "increasing" mean "stronger and stronger"? Would it be an adjective in this sentence??
Does "has been" reffers to the rain itself???
Finally, could I rewrite the sentece as: The rain (itself) is getting stronger and stronger?
I know it's kind of boring to native speakers to get into grammar details but to the poor learner it can do and help so much.
The other doubts are ok, thank you so much, RK.
