Intermediate grammar exercise: stative verbs vs. non-stative verbs

English grammar practice exercise, intermediate level.

This is an exercise for practising how we use stative verbs in the simple form as opposed to the continuous form, even when we are talking about temporary situations.

Exercise instructions

Is the verb in brackets at the end of each sentence stative or non-stative?

If the verb is stative, fill the gap with the verb in the simple form. If it is non-stative, use the continuous form.
