I am doing grammar tests and came across the following:
My brother (do) a degree at university so I (see) him very often, unfortunately.
The aim of the test is to fill each gap with the verb either in present simple or in present continuous tense. I fill it up like this:
My brother is doing a degree at university so I am not seeing him very often. unfortunately.
Unfortunately, I filled it up like this, because I thought that it is a temporary situation. But the answer is this:
My brother is doing a degree at university so I don't see him very often, unfortunately.
So the question is: Why do we use the present simple, rather then a present continuous in the second part of the sentence?
