    Re: Some Questions

    Your first answer is correct, though I would say are sometimes blown. You second is incorrect- as a clue, stick with the word used and change the form.

    Use fear, but change the form- fearing doesn't work.

    Please don't use the "textspeak" abbreviations such as "u" instead of "you" on the forum. We ask that everyone uses standard, full words especially as beginners might read these threads and become very confused.

    As ricolding said "fear" is the correct base word required, but "fearing" is not the correct form.
