'Hears' was not an option. Surely it should be 'the boy hears us' but i had the type 'the boy is hearing us'
You got this as a multiple choice question? In that case, either hears, is hearing, or both could be shown. That's done in order to create a little more variety.
My message doesnt seem to have gone through the first time so here it is again: I was surprised to see I had to submit "The boy is hearing us", too, because the verb "to hear" isn't normally used with the continuous aspect (just like the verbs "to like", "to know" or "to understand" aren't), hence my surprise. And although I do understand the desire to create diversity, I thought I'd mention it :)
Some of these sentences are just so damn funny... I just want to go to the next one and see "Pjoken äter oss."
