ACT help please!
I need help with the usage of "have" in a sentence.
In the 1850s the O'odham [have borrowed] from the waltzes and mazurkas of people of European descent on their way to California.
12. Look at the section with brackets.
F. NO CHANGE
G. have been borrowing
H. were borrowed
I narrowed it down to two answers, F and J. Ultimately, I choose F and was wrong; the correct answer was J.
How is that so? When would you use "have" in a sentence?
At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores et quas molestias excepturi sint occaecati cupiditate non provident, similique sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollitia animi, id est laborum et dolorum fuga.
Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus.
Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat.
Have been borrowing suggests repetitive or constant actions that began in the past and continue to the present. where in the case I'm assuming it stopped so it was solely in the past.
