Hello. I'll be grateful for some more help.
Is it possible to use the Perfect tense twice in the sentence, for example "Peter, who has long lived in New York, has promised to show me the city"?
Thank you very much for help.
As for the sentence about "victory" in my previous question (thank you for answering it), it's about Palestine, only it joined Unesco this year, despite strong opposition from some countries.

    Yes, that sentence with two instances of present perfect tense is fine.

    Referring to the "victory" sentence, I'd still ask the question, "Over whom did they win a victory?" The phrasing in your sentence is fine, but the word "victory" implies at least two sides -- with one side winning over the other.

    Hello again. Please help me again.
    1)English has so many synonyms that it's often difficult to make the correct choice. Do you think it's possible to use such words as "doubtless","unquestioning",
    "undeniable", "implicit" with the word "victory" or "win", for example "an implicit victory over the Labour Party" or "The Conservatives had an unquestioning win in the elections".
    2)Is it possible to use "maybe" in the context: "I thought the teacher maybe had graded (graded?)our papers" or "I thought maybe the teacher had already graded the papers"? I think a better variant is "must have graded" but are the above-given variants possible?
    Thank you very, very much.
    As for this "victory", it's just a sentence about, say, a hypothetical event.
    Thank you for your attention and time.
