Considering the first option to be correct, there is a need to change in option C .. from several to any number in particular ..!

Why not He is working ?

Its a case of Present Perfect Continuous Tense which indicates an action which began in the past but is still continuing in the present. So, the correct answer is, 'He has been working in a bank.'

Because here a time is mentioned. Like he is doing is work correct but he is doing he is working for 3 months wrong. Like he has been doing his work for 3 months, it is correct. Continuous+time= perfect continuous.
