for e.g-i have had cold for two weeks and why not this-i have been suffering from cold for more than two weeks
i also want to know when should we use "have" and "had" in sentences.
Approved answer (verified by Himanshu Sharma)
It's Present Perfect. Have (auxiliary verb) + past participle of the main verb. Here, the main verb is also have (have a cold) in its past participle form - had.
So, have (auxiliary) + had (main) = have had.
I know it.
I knew it.
I have known it.
I had known it.
have - had - had
I have it.
I had it.
I have had it.
I had had it.
