1. When I entered the room, he played the piano.

2. When I entered the room, he started to play the piano.

(Is #1 grammatical? Is #1 similar to #2?)

3. When I entered the room, he had been playing the piano for an hour.

4. When I entered the room, he was playing the piano.

(Are both grammatical?)

  • English - ,

    All 4 are grammatically correct.

    The first two are close, but don't mean exactly the same thing. In #1, it isn't clear if he started playing when "I" entered or if he had already been playing and then he continued.
