My to do list - Present continuous


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Look at the To do List FOR TODAY. Write about your crazy day. Write times and parts of the day about the actions you're doing. Write FIVE sentences.

  • 2. 

    Write about your day. What are you doing today?  Use at least 10 verbs. Include 5 affirmative and 5 negative sentences. Use the corresponding time expressions.

  • 3. 

    Three sentences are incorrect and one is correct. Choose the correct sentence

    • A.

      I work the Mondays.

    • B.

      I work in mondays

    • C.

      I work at mondays

    • D.

      I work on Mondays.

    Correct Answer
    D. I work on Mondays.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "I work on Mondays." This sentence is correct because it uses the preposition "on" to indicate the specific day of the week when the speaker works. The other sentences are incorrect because they use different prepositions ("the," "in," and "at") that are not commonly used to talk about days of the week.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    For parts of the day, we use In: In the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening. Except Night. We say AT night.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because when referring to different parts of the day, we use "in" for the morning, afternoon, and evening. However, when referring to the night, we use "at" instead of "in." This is a common grammatical rule in English.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When speaking about an action that is repeated EVERY Saturday, Monday, etc., we use the day of the week + "s" (Mondays, Tuesdays, etc.)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When we talk about an action that happens regularly on specific days of the week like Saturdays, Mondays, etc., we use the plural form of the day of the week, followed by an "s" (e.g., Mondays, Tuesdays). This is because we are referring to multiple instances of the action happening on those specific days. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Three sentences are incorrect and one is correct. Choose the correct sentence:

    • A.

      I study on the mornings

    • B.

      I study in the mornings

    • C.

      I study at the mornings

    • D.

      I study the mornings.

    Correct Answer
    B. I study in the mornings
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "I study in the mornings" because it correctly uses the preposition "in" to indicate the time period during which the studying takes place. The other sentences either use the incorrect preposition or omit it altogether.

"Now" refers to the current moment, "Tonight" refers to the evening of the current day, "Today" refers to the current day, "Tomorrow" refers to the day following the current day, and "At the moment" refers to the current period of time. These time expressions are commonly used with the present continuous tense to describe ongoing actions or future plans.

    A. Actions which are happening at or around the moment of speaking
    C. Temporary situations
    D. Changing or developing situations
    G. Fixed arrangements in the near future
    Explanation
    The present continuous tense is used to describe actions that are happening at the moment of speaking, temporary situations, changing or developing situations, and fixed arrangements in the near future. This tense is used to talk about actions that are currently taking place or ongoing, such as "I am eating dinner right now." It is also used to describe temporary situations, such as "She is staying with us for the weekend." Additionally, the present continuous tense is used to discuss changing or developing situations, such as "The weather is getting colder." Lastly, it is used to talk about fixed arrangements in the near future, such as "We are meeting for lunch tomorrow."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Choose TRUE if the sentence is CORRECT and FALSE if the sentence is INCORRECT:Now, I am cook some fish

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given sentence "Now, I am cook some fish" is grammatically incorrect. The correct form would be "Now, I am cooking some fish." The verb "cook" should be in the present continuous tense, which is "cooking" in this case. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Choose TRUE if the sentence is CORRECT and FALSE if the sentence is INCORRECT: Every Tuesday I am swimming at the pool

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The sentence "Every Tuesday I am swimming at the pool" is incorrect. The correct form should be "Every Tuesday I swim at the pool." The use of "am swimming" implies an ongoing action in the present, but the sentence is referring to a habitual action that occurs every Tuesday.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I'm not writing a card for a friend." This is the negative form of the sentence "I am writing a card for a friend." It uses the contraction "I'm" for "I am" and adds the word "not" to create the negative meaning.
