    is selling

    I wonder if tense of "is selling" is future or present progressive.
    He is selling his car for $1,000.

    Re: is selling

    In this case, I'd consider it present progressive, with the meaning "He is currently offering his car for sale."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
