    current/present/contemporary

    Hi,
    Please tell me which word is suitable for "countryside" in this context:
    "What is life in your current/temporary/present countryside?"
    Thanks.

    I'm afraid that none of them work, what exactly are you trying to say?

    Hi, Bhaisahab.
    Thank you for your answering my question.
    I'd like to ask about the life in the countryside now, not in the past. There are three possible words given for the word "countryside". I don't know which one is the best and I am surprised that none of them is suitable. Please tell me what I can do.
    Thanks.

    What is life like in the countryside these days?
    What is life currently like in the countryside?
    What is life like in the countryside at present?
    What is it like to live in the countryside these days?

    Rephrased in these ways there are several possibilities, as shown above.
