Re: Question about your exercise !
Present simple or progressive
1. It _____ me at the moment. worries or is worring.
The difference is whether the action is temporary or permanent.
I think it is better to use (is worring) because the situation is temporary.
2. He____silly questions. always asks or is always asking are both fine answers.
Sometimes, we use the adverb always in progressive from to express annoyance.
3. I_____ a lot of progress at the moment. am making
In this example, the speaker is talking about a temporary situation.
