    You need to choose the word that matches the tense. In this case, you've got 'is' - any ideas on which is present tense?

    A simple way of checking is to remove the words breaking up the verb - so 'is + your choices'

    No problem, relax. So, this question is about 'verb tenses' - so I did, I do, I have done - those kind of things. did/do/done are the same verb - just different tenses. Does that make sense? (I know this can be really confusing btw)

    Correct. So for your question above - it's all the same verb (to choose), just different tenses - usually they relate to time. Doing = now, did/done = past

    so 'Is' is a part of the verb structure - it acts as a 'helper' to the action verb. Like in this sentence: I am running. Running is the action verb, but you need 'am' with it. 'I running' doesn't make sense. This whole area is very tricky (this is why English is one of the hardest languages to learn).

    So, in your question, 'is' is a part of the verb structure - they've put a lot of words in between to confuse you. So 'is' in your question gives you a hint to the verb tense. Do you know what tense 'is' relates to? Is it present, past, or future?

    Correct! Now I'm not using the official terms here - you won't find 'helper' in a book ;). But you're getting the idea

    Completely understand - grammar takes a while to get (some of us never fully get it ;). Let me see if I can find some resources for you - and you can always post these kinds of questions up here - I'll try and keep an eye out for you. Also, I'll practice some of this myself so I can help you better.
