Dear friends,
I don´t know English very well but I do think the key has some mistakes. I suggest this answer:

The sailor fights
The sailor is fighting
The sailor does fight
The sailors fight
The sailors arefighting
The sailors do fight

Best Regards

Salve Paulus! You know English better than I do ;o)

The key has "II.1. The sailor fights / is fighting / does fight, the sailors fight / is fighting / does fight."

#1 - The sailor fights / is fighting / does fight. No problem.
#2 - The sailors fight / ARE fighting / DO fight. Agreement in case and number. You are correct. And this slipped right by me :mrgreen:
