these verbs? In what tense are they? How are they formed?
* Has worked, has been and has started are the underlined verbs in the
sentences.
* They are verbs in the present perfect tense. They are formed through
the helping verbs has and have plus the past participle form of the
verb.
What actions does the present perfect tense express?
The present perfect tense of the verb expresses an action that
happened at an indefinite time in the past.
* It also expresses an action that started in the past and is still
happening in the present. Often, they are followed by words beginning
with since or for.
* For is used with a time expression to show that an action or
condition was done in the past for a period of time.
