I want to know the differences between "Is he taking part in the play?" and "Does he take part in the play?" Are they both grammatically correct? Thanks.

1 Answer 1


They both work, in the right context. I will give some appropriate context for them:

Is he taking part in the play this year? (this particular time)

Does he take part in the spring play every year? (habitual)
