I'm having trouble understanding this answer in a study plan test. Could you please explain.
Ella estaba lavándose el pelo
cuando él llegó.She was washing her hair when he arrived.
When it is combined
with another action that interrupts the ongoing action at that time. The interrupting
action is generally in the simple past (see the last example where the ongoing
action "She was washing her
hair" was interrupted by another sudden action "he arrived”.
Te ________ hasta que me aburrí y me fui. I was waiting for you
until I got bored and left.
estaba esperando-----my answer
estuve esperando------correct Kwiziq answer
To me, it seems that the waiting was interrupted by "got bored and left."
