Hi,Today i got the exercise Present simple or progressive,and my student asked me why in the sentence It _____ me at the moment.I can use either worries or is worring.
And also in the sentence He____silly questions.I can use also use either always asks or is always asking.
but in the sentence I_____ a lot of progress at the moment.I can only use am making,i cant use either am making or make.
I got the answers from your site and i got confused when i had to explain to my students
Present simple or progressive
1. It _____ me at the moment. worries or is worring.
The difference is whether the action is temporary or permanent.
I think it is better to use (is worring) because the situation is temporary.
2. He____silly questions. always asks or is always asking are both fine answers.
Sometimes, we use the adverb always in progressive from to express annoyance.
3. I_____ a lot of progress at the moment. am making
In this example, the speaker is talking about a temporary situation.
