What is the difference in meaning in the sentences below.

a) the figure doesn't seem right, it might have been doubled up.

b) the figure doesn't seem right, it might be doubling up.

Hello, Tony—Both (a) and (b) incorrect because they are run-on sentences. Can you spot where the first sentence ends and the second begins in each example?

"It might have been doubled up" speaks of a process as having possibly occurred in the past; "it might be doubling up," of a process as possibly occurring now.
