    Saw is past tense verb of See
    and Selling is present continous..
    How can both coexist in a sentence.

    Hello,

    I am not a teacher, but if you are asking something in the past, maybe it's better to write the following sentence?

    Did + pronoun subject + infinive verb without 'to'. Or : I saw you selling ... (without question mark).

    See you soon.

    No problem.
    Like the following examples:
    I think you are happy.
    I believe you are clever.
    I thought you are intelligent.
    I saw you are selling a bedroom set.
    I saw you are painting the room.


    There is "that" which is omitted after the first verb.
    It can be put.

    I think that you are happy.
    I believe that you are clever.
    I thought that you are intelligent.
    I saw that you are selling a bedroom set.
    I saw that you are painting the room.

    I saw you are selling a bedroom set.

    Do both these sentences mean the same?

    I think Yes.

    I saw you are drinking a cup of tea.
    I saw you drinking a cup of tea.
    The same meaning.
