    future contionus

    1) I will be staying here till sunday. Can I also say"I am staying here till sunday" as its a fixed plan so we can use present continious right.

    2) Present continous means an action arranged to take place in the future which is a fixed plan .SO when should we use present continous and future contionus whats is the difference in it.Becuase I read in a book it mentioned that future continious is also used for an action to take place in future so its confusing.Please elaborate on this

    Yes, you can say this.

    2) Present continous means an action arranged to take place in the future which is a fixed plan .
    No it doesn't.
    "I am typing a reply." That is in the present continuous, and I can assure you it's happening now, not in the future.
