Present continuous tense
Is this sentence correct? "She is doing her homework at half past two." Thanks.
The sentence is actually in the present continuous tense (also called the present progressive tense). This is a different tense than the simple present tense.
The sentence is correct, but is unlikely. It means that it is now half past two and she is doing her homework. With the facts you stated in your sentence, you are more likely to be using either the past progressive or future progressive tense.
Past Progressive -- She was doing her homework at half past two.
Future Progressive -- She will be doing her homework at half past two.
