    Re: Can you answer my question

    If you mean (has had) consecutively, you can say

    Have/has means eat

    She has had her breakfast already. Present Perfect
    She is having her breakfast now. Present Progressive
    She had had her breakfast before Alan came. Past Perfect
    She usually has her breakfast at 6:30 Simple Present

    etc.

    Hi,

    I'm not a teacher, but please let me share what i know about this.

    Present perfect tense consists of

    has(third person), have(first and second person) + past participle(ex., done, gone, had, etc.)


    has + had = it is indeed a 'present perfect'


    There are many possible cases wherein we could use this tense. We use this when:

    1. the action has just finished
    I have (just) had my lunch.
    She has (just) had her lunch.

    2. when one event has happened, but we don't really care the exact time.
    I have lost my bag.

    3. and a connection of before until now
    She has had a lot of challenges since she was young.
    He has had a lot of problems since he moved in in his new place.

    I hope this helps you:)
