I did not understand.

@Revathi has it is in past tense we should use has been.

Here since should use instead of for.

Of Course @Manoj is right, and @Revathi "I did not understand" your reply is improper because "did not" follows third person. Eg. He did not understand. So, Its.

"I do not (or) don't understand".

We use past perfect when something is started in the past.

We should have used SINCE in place of FOR.

I think option B would have been appropriate as the usage of "since" must be replaced by "for".

" Wiring" just giving the message for the current scenario happening, putting "been" giving the tone for as it is happening from the past.

So been=from past, and wiring=job doing at present.

In total, "been+wiring"=process happening from past to present.
