i was asked to define this sentence’s meaning ‘I was looking in the paper when I saw a job’ and so i put ‘I was reading through the newspaper and I saw a job i was interested in’ the teacher while telling me that it is no incorrect said she wouldn’t accept my answer.
To show u a correct example
‘I used to swim’
An action or state that happened regularly in the past but doesn’t happen now.
Would that mean if i said …i was doing something when i was interrupted by a specific thing be correct?
