    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.
