Hello master PBI, mohon saya bisa diberikan contoh kalimat past perfect continuous tense,

Thank you very much

Sedikit saya akan membahas dulu fungsi dari past perfect continuous tense:

  1. Menyatakan durasi tindakan dimasa lalu sampai titik waktu tertentu dimasa lalu juga.
  2. Kalimat pengandaian (conditional sentence tipe 3)
  3. Kalimat tidak langsung (reported speech)

Contoh kalimatnya:

Positif:

Rumus: subjek+had+been+verb (-ing)+objek

He had been living in Jakarta about ten years. (Dia telah tinggal di Jakarta selama 10 tahun.)

Negatif:

Rumus: subjek+had+not+been+verb (-ing)+objek

He had not been living in Jakarta about ten years. (Dia belum tinggal di Jakarta sekitar 10 tahun.)

Tanya:

Rumus: had+subjek+been+objek+?

Had he been living in Jakarta about ten years? (Apakah dia telah tinggal di Jakarta selama 10 tahun?)

Contoh kalimat lainnya:

  • When the boys came into the house, their clothes were dirty, their hair was untidy, and one had black eye. They had been fighting

    .

  • The football match had to be stopped. They had been playing

    for half an hour when there was a terrible storm.

  • How long had you been waiting

    until the bus finally came?

  • The two boys come into the house. They had a football and they were both very tired. They had been playing

    football.

  • Ken had been smoking

    for 30 years when he finally gave it up.

  • When I looked out the window, it had been raining

    .
