A quiz about the use of Present simple vs. Present progressive


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A. What time ____ the movie start? B. At 6:60 Pm

    Correct Answer
    does
    DOES
    Does
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "does, DOES, Does." In the question, the word "does" is used to form a question in the present simple tense. The verb "start" is in the base form because it follows the auxiliary verb "does." The three different capitalizations of "does" in the answer options show that it can be used in any of these forms depending on the context or personal preference.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A. So, Al, what are your plans for this evening? B. I _____________ (visit) my uncle Arthur

    Correct Answer
    am visiting
    'm visiting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "am visiting," or "'m visiting." Both options are grammatically correct and can be used interchangeably in informal conversation. Both options indicate that the speaker has plans to visit their uncle Arthur in the evening.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A. ________ Diego and Sarah getting married soon? B. I don't think so.

    Correct Answer
    Are
    are
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Are, are" because the question is asking about the possibility of both Diego and Sarah getting married soon. The response "I don't think so" indicates doubt or uncertainty, suggesting that the speaker does not believe that Diego and Sarah will be getting married soon.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A. Hey! what's going on? Why that face? B. It's Diego again! He ___________ (always/ tell) me nick names!

    Correct Answer
    is always telling
    Is always telling
    's always telling
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is always telling." This is the correct form of the present continuous tense to describe a repeated action or habit. In this context, it implies that Diego repeatedly tells the speaker nicknames. The other options, "Is always telling" and "'s always telling," are variations of the correct answer and also convey the same meaning.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    A. Did you know that it never _______ (rain) in Atacama? B. I heard that...but the driest place on Earth is Antartica! 

    Correct Answer
    rains
    Rains
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "rains, Rains." The first sentence is in present simple tense and is asking if the person knows that it never rains in Atacama. The second sentence contradicts the first by stating that the driest place on Earth is Antarctica. The correct answer reflects the first sentence by using the present simple tense "rains" for the verb "rain" in Atacama. The second sentence starts with a capital letter, so "Rains" is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

      Is rising

    • C.

      Option 3

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. Rises
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "rises" because it is a fact that the sun rises in the east. This is a natural phenomenon that occurs every day.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Patrick and Phill _________ together by bus everyday.

    • A.

      Are traveling

    • B.

      Travel

    • C.

      Travels

    • D.

      Traveling

    Correct Answer
    B. Travel
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "travel" because it is the correct verb form to use with the subject "Patrick and Phill." When two or more people are the subject of a sentence, we use the base form of the verb (travel) without adding an -s or -ing ending.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Phill _________  by bus today. He had to take a cab.

    • A.

      No is travelling

    • B.

      Not is travelling

    • C.

      Doesn't travelling

    • D.

      Isn't travelling

    Correct Answer
    D. Isn't travelling
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "isn't travelling" because the sentence is in the present tense and "isn't" is the contraction of "is not," which is the appropriate negative form to use with the verb "travelling."
