    No. It should be It has rained all day or It was raining all day. As written, "has been rained" is wrong.

    Correct grammar is 'It has been raining all day.'   This is the verb 'to rain' in the present.  In the past, you would use the past tense of the verb.  EX:  It had rained all day (yesterday).

    No.

    'It has rained all day.'

    or

    'It has been raining all day.'

    It has been raining all day.

    It has rained all day.   It depends on whether you want to emphasize the length of time with "raining"

    When you put in "been" with the past participle, it makes the sentence passive, and this is not a passive sentence. 

    He has been rained on every time he left the house.

    This sentence is passive because the rain fell on him- he didn't do the raining. 

    been + present participle is the progressive and emphasizes the length of time.
