Present Simple Vs Present Continuous 4 - Mixed - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    He ________ to the gym twice a week. (go)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "goes" because it is the present tense form of the verb "go" that agrees with the subject "He." In this sentence, "He" is the third person singular pronoun, so we use "goes" instead of "go" to match the subject.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    She ________ her homework now. (not do)

    Explanation
    The correct answer for this question is "isn't doing,'s not doing, is not doing". These options all convey the same meaning, which is the negative form of the verb "do" in the present continuous tense. This suggests that the person mentioned in the sentence is currently not doing their homework.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Where ________ ? (you live)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "do you live" because the question is asking about the location where the person lives. The phrase "do you live" is the correct question form of the verb "live" in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What ________ about now? (you, think)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are you thinking." This is because the question is asking about what the person is currently thinking. The phrase "are you thinking" is the correct form of the question in the present tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    I ________ a series on Netflix at the moment. (watch)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is 'm watching, am watching because the sentence is in the present continuous tense, which is used to describe an action happening at the moment of speaking. The subject "I" is followed by the auxiliary verb "am" and the present participle form of the verb "watching". Since the sentence is referring to an ongoing action in the present, both options 'm watching and am watching are correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    ________ a printer? (they have)

    Explanation
    The question is asking about the possession of a printer. The correct answer options "do they have" and "have they got" both indicate the same meaning of ownership. "Do they have" is a standard question form, while "have they got" is a more informal way of asking the same thing. Both options are grammatically correct and can be used interchangeably in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    They ________ right now. (not swim)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "aren't swimming,'re not swimming,are not swimming" because the phrase "aren't swimming" is the contraction of "are not swimming" and "re not swimming" is the contraction of "are not swimming". These phrases indicate that the action of swimming is not happening at the present moment.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    We ________ in Germany. (live)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "live" because it is the correct verb form to complete the sentence. The sentence is asking about the action of living in Germany, and "live" is the present tense form of the verb that matches the subject "we".

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    They ________ here at the moment. (not be)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "aren't,'re not,are not" because these options all indicate the negative form of the verb "to be" in the present tense. In the given sentence, the speaker is stating that someone or something is not currently present or in a particular location. The options provided all convey this meaning effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    He ________ computer games at the moment. (play)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is 's playing, is playing. The sentence is in the present continuous tense, indicating an action happening at the moment. The use of 's playing and is playing shows that the subject, he, is currently engaged in the activity of playing computer games.
