    Post Question

    How are you? I'm just confuse whenever I see simple present like I'm getting rewarded or I'm exhausted, those verbs have to be in the past participle?? Thanks for taking the time to see my message.

    Your post is unclear, but I would suggest you have a look at these pages first, and then post back if you still have a question:

    Welcome to the forum.

    There is no need to enquire after our wellbeing at the start of a post. Please enclose phrases you are querying inside quotation marks.

    "I am getting rewarded" is not a natural sentence. Even if it were, "I'm getting" is the present continuous.
    "I'm exhausted" is the simple present (I am) followed by an adjective (exhausted).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
