Guess you are right - There are two Present tenses correct: One would be "Sie tun es jeden tag" = "They do it every day" Simple Present tense and the other one we have here is the Present Progressive "Sie tun es (gerade eben)" = "They are doing it"
In german its both the same. Here are no (keywords) in this sentence so both should be accepted.
OK! Thanks so much! You have no idea how much easier German is for me now! I used to think that they both had the same intent but you had to use them for different situations. Sorry if I have been a little stubborn about believing you, I had to make sure you were 100% right. I believe you now, thanks!
tun/tut → to do something
machen → to make something
"machen" can be used to describe doing something or making something, but "tun" cannot be used to describe "making something"
