Can it be B...?

Narendra said: (Jul 8, 2010)  
Can't it be "from".

Rajesh said: (Jul 9, 2010)  
When given a week, day, month or year then we use FOR.

EX: for a week, for a year.

When given a particular point of time ie 6'o clock, 1947 we use since.

EX: since 1947, since 6'o clock.

But for or from used in perfect continuous tense as present past or future perfect continuous tenses as used have/has/had/will/shall + been.

Used to indicate a specified place or time as a starting point: walked home from the station; from six o'clock on.

For means period of time.

Since means point of time.

Charu said: (Oct 22, 2014)  
Here we can't use since or for because sentence is formed with present prefect tense and we can use since or for only with prefect continuous tense.

Devil Said said: (Dec 23, 2014)  
Since is used in case of "point of time".

And for is used in case of "period of time" week in this sentence is representing a period of time so the answer is 'for'.

We can't use time with have+3rd form.

Can we use I hadn't seen fora week?

Niharika said: (Dec 26, 2018)  
'since' is preferred for a period of time which starts in the past & still is continuing. And 'for' is used when something had started in the past but stopped. The answer is FOR since the action had stopped by seeing the person.

Priyanka said: (Aug 19, 2019)  
Thanks @Rajesh.
