Solution

a) Are you visiting us during the Christmas holidays?

b) We are spending the holidays here on a farm house. (Here the reference is to the future, so we can’t use a past tense here. The verb ‘spent’ is in the simple past tense. Also, we are talking about a pre-planned future event here. So, we use the present continuous tense.)

c) My parents want to meet you. (The plural noun ‘parents’ require a plural verb. The verb ‘wants’ is singular.)

d) Don’t forget to bring woolen clothes. (After do, does and did, we use the first form of the verb.)

e) Hope you will reply to me soon.
