Hi Rohit,

first you need to look at the subject. Subject can be either singular or plural.

If the subject is singular, you should use has / had been and if the subject is plural, you should use have and have been.

now let us see where to use 'has/have' and where to use 'has been / have been'. To know this you must have the knowledge of Tense and also Active Passive Voice.

If the sentence is in Active voice then 'has' will be used in Present Perfect Tense and 'has been / have been' will be used in Present Perfect Continuous Tesnse. To understand more , please watch this video : https://youtu.be/2J9jAXCsLLE

 

hope it helps!
