    Present Participle

    What are the correct present participle forms of "know" and "be"? I think it's "am" and "know" respectively but I'm not sure.

    Re: Present Participle

    Welcome, twist5684.

    A present participle ends in -ing.

    Does that help?

    Correction
    I think it's "know" and "am", respectively.

    Note, you had "am" and "know", the wrong order.

    Re: Present Participle

    You're most welcome. Did you figure out the present participles for know and be? (They're knowing and being, respectively.)

    All the best.
