Hello- I don't agree with the given answer for the question below and would appreciate your input.

The weather has been awful. It's rained / been raining  for five days already this week.

The given answer was the present perfect - It's rained.

I feel both options are valid. Am I missing something?

Thanks much, Fay

Hi, Fay,

I agree with you that both options are valid, the one in the present perfect continuous indicating that it is still raining now. With the present perfect simple, it might be the case that it has not rained today.
