Question ?

Boukhadra Mohamed Amine


why  in this exemple we use  the present perfect:


Karl has not heard the news yet.


Instead of Present Perfect Continuous , because Karl has not yet 


heard the news.that means that the action is still in progress?

Hello Boukhadra,

We don't usually use the PPC in a negative sentence because it doesn't make sense to insist on the continuity of an action that has never taken place.
