      Teaching

    Correct Answer
    B. Is teaching
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is teaching" because the subject "teacher" is singular, so it requires the singular form of the verb "to be" (is) to agree with it. Additionally, the word "teaching" is the present participle form of the verb "teach," which is used to show an ongoing action in the present.

    David and Steve...................planting flowers in the garden.

    • A.

      Planting

    Correct Answer
    A. Are planting
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are planting." This is because the subject of the sentence, David and Steve, is plural. In English, when the subject is plural, we use the verb form "are" to agree with it. Therefore, "are planting" is the correct choice to show that both David and Steve are participating in the action of planting flowers in the garden.

    B. Are shopping
