請問在這兩句中英文的時式

一、My parents have gone to London for one year and are leasing an apartment.

句中疑點是用and 連接時態並不一致,一個為現在完成式,另一為現在進行式。why?

二、Auction sites like eBay have made purchasing used belongings popular.

為什麼have+p.p.後再接purchasing 為何不 have + purchased 或 have been purchased呢?

請高手指點一、二。

    一、My parents have gone to London for one year and are leasing an apartment.

    句中疑點是用and 連接時態並不一致,一個為現在完成式,另一為現在進行式。why?

    先中文翻譯一下吧:我父母親(目前)已經去倫敦一年了,而且正在租一棟公寓.

    針對你的問題:現在完成式與現在進行式都是現在式的時間,本來就沒有衝突

    而且and連接的句子未必都是時態一致的,例如我改寫這句子~

    ex:My parents went to London a year ago and they are leasing a flat now.

    ex2:I used to live in London ,but I live in Taiwan now.二、Auction sites like eBay have made purchasing used belongings popular.

    為什麼have+p.p.後再接purchasing 為何不 have + purchased 或 have been purchased呢? 1.購買二手物品,在這裡這片語你要看做動名詞片語

    既然是動名詞片語,當然可以作為名詞使用

    例如動名詞當主詞的用法你一定知道:Purchasing used belongings is popular in Taiwan.

    動名詞當受詞的用法你一定也知道:I enjoy playing computer games.

    這都是因為動名詞當做名詞來用,才能當主詞、受詞 2. 這裡有用到make的句型:

    ex: you make me happy~主詞+make+受詞+受詞補語

    Ebay has made ...... popular. 當中的.......就是要放一個名詞進去(如同1所解釋)但是一般而言這句話我會用以下句型來表達

    Auction sites like eBay have made it popular to purchase used belongings.

    因為受詞太長時,英文習慣用虛受詞it先代替,在用to V把真受詞寫出來
