Here is an exercise from English Grammar in Use.
- You're usually very patient, so why _________ so unreasonable about waiting ten more minutes? are you
The answer key says "are you being". Why the answer "are you" is incorrect ?
- Why isn't Steve at work today? He ______ ill. is being
The answer key says "is". I think Steve is still ill when the speaker ask this question. Can I use "is being" ?
