Is it more correct to say "the question has arisen more than once" or "the question has been arising more than once". Or maybe it's much better to say: "the question arose"?

  • Principal parts: arise, arose, arisen. Thanks. Michael

The question has arisen more than once.
That is how the participle of arise is spelled.
Otherwise, the phrasing is correct.

Has been arising more than once
doesn't make sense.
