1. You have smelled my cakes.

2. I haven't stolen your cakes.

(What does each present perfect tense mean? Does each mean 'experience' or 'result' or 'accomplishment'?)

2 answers

  1. 1. I have not broken my leg.
    2. I have broken my leg. (result)
    3. I have never broken my leg.

    #2 is result. What about #1 and #3?
    Are #1 and #3 result in the present perfect tense? Or are both 'experience'?

  2. 1. You smelled my cakes. ("Have" is not needed.)

    2. "I didn't steal your cakes." would be better.

    1. I don't know why you always have to use "have."

    "I did not break my leg."

    2. "I broke my leg."

    3. Yes!

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
