E) has enjoyed / was appearing
My answer is (C). I am really not sure about this answer. Because, I don't think we can use the verbs with -ing form which are like ' enjoy-hate-like' That is how I remember.

It would have been better to write something like: "Sorry, I don't understand the word 'Gil'".
Incidentally, your question would sound more natural as: "Is it acceptable to say 'excuse me'' in such cases?"
That rule is often right. "I am liking this sandwich" is a mistake for "I like this sandwich." "I am hating my job" is a mistake for "I hate my job." (But be aware that there are valid uses even for those that are jocular or highly idiomatic.) "Enjoy" is not the same as those, though. "I am enjoying this sandwich" is plain English, and "I enjoy this sandwich" is wrong.
I posted this title to see If my answers are correct for these questions or not. But nobody is talking about my answers for questions ?
Are you unable to see Gil's responses in red in his first post? Or Coolfootluke's comment on why enjoying is okay?
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.
I just want to learn If my answers are true or not
