Hi,

1. We HAVE LIVED in a house for 3 days. (Present perfect: means action began in the past but is still continuing)
2. We HAVE BEEN LIVING in this house for the last 3 days. (Present perfect continuous: means action began in the past, is still continuing in the present and will probably continue in the future).

Question:
1. How do we know the probability of action in sentence 1 continuing/not continuing in future?
2. If such a scenario arrives in GMAT question, which one of the above would be more preferable?
