    hola, en la frase 10, porque se usa el presente simple si esta at the moment que pertenece al presente continuo? ( I don`t need it al the moment)

    1. Porque aunque la regla dice que si nos referimos a “at the moment” y “now” necesitamos el present continuous, con ciertos verbos es imposible utilizarlo. A estos verbos les conocemos como “non-action verbs” o “state verbs” y estos son algunos: need, know, want, have (poseer), possess, belong, etc.

    Hola, en la pregunta 14b podría ser Where are your parents live?. Muchas gracias

    1. No, el verbo to be no lo podemos combinar con un verbo en infinitivo o presente (live).
      Saludos

    Hola, me gustaría saber si en la respuesta 16-b no debería responder he doesn´t working, muchas gracias

    1. Hola, no es posible la respuesta que propones porque el don’t o doesn’t se utiliza para el presente simple, donde el verbo debe ir en infinitivo (He doesn’t see his family every day). En cambio, el presente continuo se niega con el verbo to be (he isn’t staying). No podemos combinar los auxiliares don’t y doesn’t del present simple con la forma ing del present continuo.
      Saludos,

  1. Hola, no entiendo porqué en la respuesta 16 se utiliza does y no do con your father . Gracias

    1. Hola Juan:
      porque “your father” es tercera persona del singular, nos referimos a he (él), por tanto, debemos poner does. Más ejemplos: Does your mother like coffee? / Does your sister have any children? / Does your teacher explain well?
      Espero que lo entiendas ahora.
      Gracias por seguirnos y saludos,
      Patricia
