    Please give me reasons why ...

    What do you intend to do?
    What are you intending to do?

    What uses of present simp and con are used in these 2 sentences?

    refer to : ENGLISH PAGE - Present Continuous
    ENGLISH PAGE - Simple Present

    And also what about the meaning between two of these? Are they the same?



    Thanks a lot in advance

    Thanks a lot in advance
    I'm not a teacher, but I have something that may help you.
    There is a slight difference in meaning. Let's take an example: Suppose you find a wallet with $500 inside it. You are not sure what to do about it. The next day you tell your friend what happened. He will probably say:
    "What are you intending to do (with the money)?"

    This -ing form of the question is directly related to a recent event.

    The question "What do you intend to do?" might be the question your friend asks, but this question has a much more general meaning. For example:
    What do you intend to do when you leave school?
    When do you intend to buy a house?


    Hope this helps.
