Present Prect Tense Problem小弟就快考DSE，有問題想問問。
一個委員已經拒絶我一個要求，之後委員好大可能會拒絶其他要求，想問問大家現在我可唔可以講"Committe members have been
rejecting my requests." 來形容有沒有問題。

I would say the present perfect continuous may not be appropriate here because "have been rejecting" sounds like you have had a lot of requests over a period of time and none of them has been accepted. To make it clear, I suggest making them two separate actions instead of one.
e.g. The committee members (have) rejected my previous request and it is very likely my other requests will also be rejected.
What do you think?
