    What a lovely day.  I____ ____ (think) about going to the park.  Do you want to come?

    Explanation
    Remember - verbs like "think" can be used for two different meanings. "I think it is cold today" is an opinion (a state) so we use simple tenses. "I'm thinking about my dinner tonight" is something you are doing (an action) so we can use the continuous. You should read the context carefully to decide if it is a "state" or an "action".

    Correct Answer
    A. I've known her since I was 5 years old.
    Explanation
    (1) When we talk about how long we have known somebody, we use the present perfect. We do NOT use the present simple because we are talking about the past and the present at the same time.
    (2) To know somebody is a state, so we do not use continuous tenses.
    (3) The state started in the past and continues to now so it is linked to the present.
