Say Person 'A' has assigned some work to person 'B' and he is coming back after some time to check the progress expecting person 'B' would have finished it.
A: How is that work going? are you finished?
B: it was going well...
At this moment, If I was person 'A' , i would prefer to interrupt with the following(I have a similiar use in my native language), because i sense that something has gone wrong after a good start.
A: was? ( is this correct?)
Could you please give me some examples if possible?
