    Contractions question

    Hi,

    What are the contractions (AmE) for the following sentences?


    1. What is he doing there?

    2. Where are you going?

    3. What are they doing with that money?

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Re: Contractions question

    1. 'What's he doing here?'

    2. 'Where're you going?'

    3. I wouldn't use any contraction here.

    Re: Contractions question

    My answers are the same.
    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.
