|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.

|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'.

|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.|
