That’s Rob!In the test sentence ‘Your puppy _______ (to swim)!’ the speaker draws someone’s attention to the puppy. As it is direct speech, we understand that something is in progress at the moment of speaking. Thus,we need the present continuous tense in the test sentence. For the present continuous we use am, are, is + the-ing form of the verb. When the verb ends in a vowel followed by a single consonant and if the last syllable is stressed, then the consonant is doubled. The verb ‘swim’ ends in a vowel followed by a single consonant -im and the last syllable is stressed, thus, swim → swimming. Therefore, we are to choose ANSWER 3.
