O.ABOOTTYYou are panting, a) Have you been running ?
The present perfect act of running is the cause for your panting. So A is the logical and grammatical answer.
Thank you.

Hello.
Present perfect continuous can be used to describe an action that has just been completed with evident physical results.
So if you see someone with the paint on his hair, you can ask have you been painting?
Or for someone who is red and panting, you can ask have you been running?

But the PP continuous was not one of the answer choices.
Choice A is in form of present perfect continuous. Look more carefully. Emotion: smile

Yes in deed. I used A to explain the question in my reply. I was confused.
Thank you.
