Ich finde auch. Ich würde höchstens das "he" wiederholen. Aber falsch ist es m.E. so nicht.
Warte auf weitere Antworten.
Nichts dran auszusetzen, meiner Meinung nach. Eher ein Musterbeispiel 😊
Mir gehts gerade umgekehrt, mit Wiederholung des Subjekts "he" zerbricht der Satz. Warum dann nicht gleich das "and" weglassen und zwei Sätze draus machen?
Yes, I think the sentence is best left as it is, without a second "he".
Presumably the test is to check the use of simple past / present perfect. Whether present perfect or present perfect continuous or not is Geschmacksache. The "he" issue is, IMO, neither here nor there.
Sure, it's no more than a style question. All I intended (in #4) was to give an understandable reason for omitting the second "he".
Good you bring up the question of the continuous form. In this case, it really doesn't express that much. It would need some nitpicking to challenge that decision as not being a matter of taste.
#6 - Grammarians might disagree that tense choice is "Geschmackssache" in this case. I remember a Cambridge University Press "English Grammar in Use" stressing that sentences about duration generally take the present perfect progressive, sentences about results take the present perfect simple. So according to that trusted source, indeed the present perfect progressive is the correct tense choice in the given sentence.
