Elementary Grammar - Odd Man Out

1) d - This is wrong because we need the Present Progressive to talk about an action now: He is working at home today.
2) d - This is wrong because we cannot use "like" in a progressive form: I really like this cake - it's delicious.
3) d - This is wrong because we cannot use the Past Simple to talk about something that continues: I have known him all my life until now.
4) c - This is wrong because we don't need "did" for a subject question: Who broke the window?
5) b - This is wrong because "well" is in the wrong place: She speaks English well.
6) c - This is wrong because we have two auxiliaries and we only need "is": Is he leaving today?
