Current A: of or belonging to the present time B: being in progress now C: a body of water of air flowing in a definite direction D: a movement or flow of energy
1. Current negotiations are being conducted.
Would the "current" in the context be suitable for definition A, B, C, or D?
I think definition D: a movement of flow of energy.
A movement or flow of energy is like the electricity going to a light bulb or a microwave.
Notice the verb tense in your sentence: "are being conducted."
Please try again.
Is it B: being in progress right now?
Also I have another one that I did not get:
The current was not strong enough to operate all of the appliances in the house.
I put down definition D for that.
Now you've got it! :-) Both answers are correct.
