#EngQuiz: answer these questions (tenses exercise)

Ahem. What are you doing, fellas? How was your fasting and iftar today? Or how was your Monday in general so far? :)

Anyway, did you know that you can test your grammar and mastery of tenses by looking at how you answer a question in complete sentence? :)

Don’t believe me? Let’s see from the questions I asked earlier:

  1. Q1. What are you doing, fellas?
  2. Q2. How was your Monday in general so far?

Here’s how you should answer those 2 questions in complete sentence:

@miratssss: (Q1) I’m studying. (Q2) Today wasn’t bad.”

See?

Q1 is in Present Continuous/ Progressive Tense, and Q2 is in Past Simple Tense. And that is why the answers should be in the same tenses. :)

While you’re doing what you’re doing, let’s do this simple #EngQuiz. What you have to do is answer the questions using complete sentence. :)

  2. Where are you now?
