Hello everyone

What is the best sentence for this picture:


1. He has watched TV for 3 hours.
or
2. He has been watching Tv for 3 hours.
Original Post
If the watcher is still watching TV, "has been watching...for three hours" describes the picture.

If the watcher has fallen asleep, we might use "has watched."

If the watcher is just about to go to bed, we might use "has watched," too, in this sentence: "Nigel has watched TV for three hours, and now he is going to bed."

Since it appears that Nigel is still watching TV, probably "has been watching" is accurate.
