    settled/settling

    Australia, with its nature beauty and the beautiful buildings, attracts tourists from all over the world. And many birds and animals are found ______ (settle) only on this land.
    A. settled
    B. settling
    Key B.


    My first question:
    1. Some people are found settled in this region.
    2. Some people are found settling in this region.

    3. Many birds are found settled in this region.
    4. Many birds are found settling in this region.

    Aresentences 1,2,3 and 4 grammatically correct? In the topic instance, what would "animals are found settled only on this land" mean?


    My second question:
    Settle is not an appropriate word for animals, right?


    Many thanks in advance.

    3. Many birds are found settled in this region.
    4. Many birds are found settling in this region.

    Aresentences 1,2,3 and 4 grammatically correct? In the topic instance, what would "animals are found settled only on this land" mean? Yes they are all grammatically correct. Settled means living permanently. I would choose settled for the exercise.


    My second question:
    Settle is not an appropriate word for animals, right? Yes it is, especially for birds.

    Many thanks in advance.


    Bhai.
