    Unhappy correct sentence 2

    Please tell me which one of the sentences below is wrong.


    ①I find that something was wrong with my watch.
    ②He’s finding that he was mistaken.
    ③You’re continually finding fault with her.
    ④We’re finding that this problem is more complicated.
    ⑤She’s finding out what really happened.

    Sorry, I think No.2 is wrong. Is this right?
    This problem is a little bit complicated to me.
    Please, help me!

    Re: correct sentence 2

    1- This would make more sense if the past tense werre usd - I found... was
    2- Very unlikely, because it would imply that this took place over a long period of time- it's possible, though, but it is the least likely of these sentences. Without more context, it does sound wrong, but it would be possible to create a context for it.
    3- Fine
    4- Fine
    5- Fine
