    I would like to ask the use of 'continuous' instead of continuing.

    Hello, teachers.
    Can you please see the question below?
    The answer is B. continuing, but I am wondering if 'continuous' can also be an answer.
    If I put 'continuous' in the blank, is it awkward?
    Thank you in advance.



    As a result, more investors were attracted to the real
    estate market. This trend has created a positive buying
    and selling cycle ------- even today.

    A. countinuous B. continuing
