Rejected without ella.
05/16/18. This exercise is apparently only a week old and there is only one post. Would appreciate some help with this string of verbs:
imperfect (parecía) + infinitive (estar) + gerund/present participle (escribiendo).
Any rules or guidance here?
I would like to know too!! Is parecer imperfect because it's implying: "she seemed to be writing something when..... something happened."
Any nativos out there?
«Pareció que escribió algo.»
The use of the preterite could be right, but doesn't seem as likely as the imperfect. The duration and extent of the "seeming" appears to be indefinite, so I would choose the imperfect parecia.
But I am no expert!
I was also marked wrong for omitting 'ella' and reported it.
is "ella parecia estar escribir algo" wrong? Does it have to be the present participle of write?
"Ella parecía escribiendo algo" is wrong?
Is estar mandatory?
