    Not quite. If I would hear somebody say "I think that I'm seeing the dentist" I would think that person is looking at somebody and is not sure if that person is the dentist (who would have been mentioned previously).

    Yes, and so is option 4. (There is only one wrong answer.)

    I've answered equally and I don't understand that explanation:
    Not quite. If I would hear somebody say "I think that I'm seeing the dentist" I would think that person is looking at somebody and is not sure if that person is the dentist (who would have been mentioned previously).
    Why will you think that person is looking at somebody but not the dentist?

    Re: Appointments

    For starters, "I think that I'm seeing the dentist" is not one of the options. Also, if you think you are seeing something you are not sure what it is you are looking at.

    (It may be about time to close this thread.)
