You need to get rid of the the then.

Patricia Ogri

'Now' and 'then' are two advers refering to diffrent times. 'Now' is refering to the present while 'then' is refering to the past. It is not appropriate to use them together. ' Are you online now?' is the right question to ask.

It has no other options. You are mixing things if you say that this is a correct sentence. "Then" is wrong

alfred

Being incorrect doesnt make it inacceptabl, otherwise we would all be still thus-ing and thee-ing like ye olde englishe

Joshua

IMHO, the sentence should have been..Are you online now, then?

sleazy

It would be correct if there were a comma after now, but it'ds acceptable (at a2 level anyway:))
