In Past Continuous Tense, time may come. Like in Present Continuous Tense, if starting time of the action is given and action remain continued, the Continuous Tense becomes Perfect Continuous Tense.

e.g. I was driving a car - Past Continuous Tense.
After adding continuous time 'for two hour' it becomes Past Perfect Continues and will be translated as
I had been driving a car for two hours.

वह दो घंटे से सो रहा था - पास्ट पर्फेक्ट कन्टीन्युअस टेन्स (क्योंकि यहां लगातार समय 'दो घंटे से' का प्रयोग हुआ है) ।
