  • English -

    1. If the person has moved into the new house, he/she is undoubtedly living in it.

    2. With the verb "has had," it is asking about someone who had two dogs in the past and the person may still have two dogs in the present, or maybe not. It's not clear cut because it's asking about the past not the present.

    3. This is about the same as #2 -- someone who has been on a diet in the past and could still be on a diet now -- or maybe not.

    4. Same as #2 and #3. Definitely in the past; maybe now, maybe not now.
