The girls are really hungry. They are eating hotdogs. They aren't drinking anything.

The kids are playing in the park. They aren't playing videogames. Smart kids.
What? Is that a monkey? Is he playing the guitar? Yes, he IS playing the guitar.

So, it works like that : SUBJECT + VERB TO BE + MAIN VERB WITH ING.
The negative is: SUBJECT + VERB TO BE + NOT/N’T + VERB WITH ING
The interrogative is: VERB TO BE + SUBJECT + VERB WITH ING.
