Please, dear teachers and friends...
could you shed some light on this?
Keep your eyes open/closed!
The door is open, come in!
Have you watched the US open championship?
She opened the door.
Why are you so worry about that? Let it go!
Why were you so worried about acing the exam? It's no big deal.
Are they OK?
I feel like I can use them safely but sometimes I got confused. Could you explain the difference between them?
hmmm... someone made me believe that 'worry' should be used when we are referring to the present, and 'worried' to the past.
Why are you worry(ied) about it?
O.K. It's why do you worry, or why are you worried about it?
Both basically mean the same thing.
The slightest difference in the meaning would be this. If you say why do you worry about it, it means worry about it at all, or any time.
If you say "why are you worried" it indicates that you are worried about it at this moment.
"Why are you worried about the rain" indicates that it is raining right now, and something may be damaged by that rain.
If you are driving a car in a heavy rain, it could make the streets slippery and dangerous. That would be the "worried about the rain."
"Why do you worry about the rain?" Would indicate that rain in general is something that could be causing damage or a problem.
If you know that the roof on your house is not in good shape, you would worry about rain in general, today, tomorrow, next week.
Since I am not a teacher, I hope that I have been able to explain this, but I am a bit worried about it.
