    D. "was sleeping" is past continuous B. "had been sleeping" is past perfect continuous/progressive C. "had slept" is past perfect A. "have been sleeping" present perfect continuous/progressive In English, continuous = progressive. Continuous/progressive verbs indicate ongoing (continuous). These verbs use some version of "to be," e.g. "had been sleeping" and "have been sleeping."
