[Grammar] Can We Say “I’m Liking It”?

👉Hi~ Welcome back to [Grammar] today! It’s nice to learn with you guys!👈

All verbs in English are classified as either stative or action verbs (also referred to as ‘dynamic verbs’). Action verbs describe actions we take (things we do) or things that happen. Stative verbs refer to the way things ‘are’ – their appearance, state of being, smell, etc. The most important difference between stative and action verbs is that action verbs can be used in continuous tenses and stative verbs cannot be used in continuous tenses.

  • The reason of choosing that answer.
    First question I choose B due to word “it” that we can say as third person or thing, which is not talk about me or you so we have to put “s” in a verb after subject. And then for the second question has similar explaination, which the subject as the Third person and the verb after subject must put “s” in there. Thank you.
