    Mlutiple choice option [At 7 o’clock this morning, my father...]

    At 7 o’clock this morning, my father ……. in the garden.

    a)is working
    b)worked
    c)was working (Answer Key)
    d)works

    Hi,
    Can options "a" and "be" work too?
    I mean:

    At 7 o’clock this morning, my father is working in the garden. (Maybe we talk at 5 AM about future)
    At 7 o’clock this morning, my father worked in the garden. (Maybe we talk at 9 PM about past)

    Any thoughts?

    Yes, a case could be made for all three.
