Has or is.

.

default When has or is comes before a past participle (been, done, gone, made, etc.), we have to understand the meaning from the context of the whole sentence. Sometimes this is easy, other times more difficult:

Peter has gone to school.
Peter is going to school as soon as he finishes his breakfast.
It has been 10 years since I saw her.
Coca-Cola is the world’s most popular soft drink, it is sold everywhere.
Peter is asleep again.
The coffee has gone. Peter has drunk it all.
