Hello tutor, I have recently joined this platform and i am very much glad to learn here. I have a question for following scenario. scenario 1 : I am returning from my office. I reach my home. I open the door and instantly notice that someone was in my home in my absence. I want to call my friend and tell what has happened? which tense(s) are appropriate? 1) Somebody had been in my home when i was at office. (past perfect) 2) It looks like somebody has been in my home. 3) somebody has been being in my home. ( present perfect continuous in the case of stopped action/ recently stopped action. and i can see the evidence of the presence) Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
