I disagree with both of your answers.
The four statements below describe the meaning of the tenses used
1.Jack stopped to call a friend.
2.What are you doing?
3.I was hoping to hear from you.
4.this guy makes his own instruments
Identify the sentence which is being described?

I'm confused here is try

B matches with 3
C matches with 1
D matches with 4
Your answers are correct.
