  • English -

    You've mixed up sentences 1 and 2.

    The first sentence verb is in the past tense (have been), implying action that happened in the past and is now completed. Sentence A. also is in the past tense and the action (reading) is completed.

    Sentences 2 and B imply action that has been and is ongoing. The actions may not be completed yet.
