ENG question , thz
1.Economics has( ever )been known as a gloomy science. ( Wrong)
2.Economics has( long )been known as a gloomy science. (Correct)
The first one is my choice.
But the correct answer is the second one.
Are there any grammatical mistakes or else for the first one?

就咁讀呢兩句句子, 第二句的確通順d..所以我會揀Ans. 2....我再諗我幾時會用ever夾係have __ been, 我只諗我只會用於問題度...如 : have u ever been to? have u ever tried?等等....我自知英文不太好, 沒有能力說出any mistake...但我很想說出用ever確是有點不妥..ever有點不確定及比較的意味...我後來在yahoo字典查, 結果如下
If you ever see George, give him my kind regards.
She was happier than she had ever been.
He is one of the very best men I have ever met.
No such person ever existed.
Have you ever been to London?
He is ever ready to help you.
Who ever can it be?
What ever put that idea in your head?
Was she ever tired!
因此只有Ans. 2 - long been known可以說明一直是, 長久以來..(肯定的語氣)...去說明意思, 若轉變成問句便可用ever, Has Economics ever been known as a gloomy science?
I hope it can slightly help u, maybe some other people here can express more explanation to prove Ans. 2 is correct :-)
