    Re: Help required on 10th of the march.

    Welcome, jhonsmith1.

    Sitting, standing, lying, being, and so on, are stative-progressive verbs.

    Ex: She is sitting next to me. <stative-progressive verb>

    The person is in a continuous state of being;i.e., sitting in one place.

    Does that help?
