Interrogation with Response Using Present Perfect refers to the way we ask questions and respond to them using the Present Perfect tense in English. The Present Perfect tense is used to talk about past actions or events that have a connection to the present. When asking questions in this tense, we use the auxiliary verbs “have” or “has” followed by the subject and the past participle form of the main verb. The response to these questions should also use the appropriate form of the auxiliary verb followed by the main verb in its past participle form. This helps us communicate about experiences, actions, or events that started in the past and continue to have an impact or relevance in the present
