    Is this sentence correct?

    Dear all,

    Can you please tell me whether the following sentences are correct or not?

    1. He will continue to be there.

    I used to be because it is connecting continue with there. Word There is an adjective.

    2. I am not being able to solve this problem.

    .
    1-- The sentence is fine, but there is not an adjective, but an adverb of place.
    2-- no; I am not able. To be being is an extremely unlikely durative.

    Thanks for the response.

    BUt if we write, He will continue there. . Then?

    What would be the difference.

    .
    He will continue there is somewhat idiomatic, to my mind-- usually meaning he will continue in his work/position at that place.
