Is there a difference between eats and is eating?

I put "Mother is eating spinach," which was marked incorrect. The possessive "My" mother is usually implied and not specified. There is nothing to indicate a determiner or possessive might be required.

Waa' is possibly my favorite Navajo word. Look at that crap! What else Would you call it?
