Hello,

The question is wrong; it should be "What are you doing here?" instead. I hope that you will correct it as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Best wishes,

Thanks, Bhikkhu. I've fixed it and the other mistake in that quiz set. Corrected versions will appear with our next database update.

Dear teachers,
Why the word "came" in the sentence is past tense?

Thank you

You are there now which means you came (arrived) earlier - perhaps only a minute or so, perhaps longer... but either way it happened in the past.

"I have come to visit my mother," would be an alternative statement, especially if you are just arriving.

"What are youdoing here? "
You have to use space between you and doing.
