Salut, If it is correct to say, Je suis en train de lire le journal, why can't one say, "Mes oncles sont en train de peler des pommes de terre dans la cuisine." ?
It is simply because we were just testing the conjugation of the verb 'peler' and not the expression 'être en train de peler'.
The system doesn't accept freeform answers in these kwiz questions.
Bonne Continuation !
It is certainly grammatically correct. Whether it is also stylistically accurate depends on the context.
