Student or Learner
Cathy is taking notes of the grammatical rules in class at Sunshine School, where she ______ English for a year.
This was one of China's university admission examination questions. The given answer is: "has been studying".
I know the given answer is right. But I thought another two of the four choices were right too:
studies: if this is what is arranged in the teaching program. And
is studying: if this is what Cathy has arranged and she's just starting the course.
Could I ask native English teachers to help me?
Thank you very much.
