We observe multiple electronic Raman scatterings (ERSs) in a single suspended metallic single-walled carbon nanotube. The ERS process originates from the inelastic scattering of photoexcited excitons by a continuum of low-lying electron-hole pairs. In previous work, the observed Fano factor of the G band line shape is always negative; however, in this work we find that the Fano factor can be either positive or negative depending on the relative position of the nearest ERS with respect to the G band. This supports the idea that the origin of the G band asymmetry is an interference between the discrete G band and the continuous ERS. We also report that the ERS position and intensity are sensitive to the nanotube bundling effect and the laser heating effect.
