1. You have smelled my cakes.
2. I haven't stolen your cakes.
(What does each present perfect tense mean? Does each mean 'experience' or 'result' or 'accomplishment'?)
1. I have not broken my leg.
2. I have broken my leg. (result)
3. I have never broken my leg.
#2 is result. What about #1 and #3?
Are #1 and #3 result in the present perfect tense? Or are both 'experience'?
1. You smelled my cakes. ("Have" is not needed.)
2. "I didn't steal your cakes." would be better.
1. I don't know why you always have to use "have."
"I did not break my leg."
2. "I broke my leg."
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
