Mes oncles ________ des pommes de terre dans la cuisine.
My uncles are peeling potatoes in the kitchen.
HINT: Conjugate 'peler' (to peel) in Le Présent
I believe there are two correct answers to this question:
1) Mes oncles pèlent des pommes de terre dans la cuisine.
2)Mes oncles sont en train de peler des pommes de terre dans la cuisine.
I put the second option and got marked wrong. Am I correct in thinking this should be acceptable?
Both sentences are correct. The second one just stresses the fact that they are in the middle of it right now. Since the lesson is about the conjugation of -eler verbs, that's the reason, I think, the solution didn't include the second one. It's also the standard translation, whith minimal reference to any required context.
