Tell me please what’s the difference between

Why are you crying? and Why do you cry?

  • Thanks for all
astrolyabusWhy are you crying?

Th victim is crying right now. The speaker wants to know the reason.

astrolyabus Why do you cry?

Sometimes people cry. There can be many reasons, but some people cry because of one particular circumstance. e.g.

I cry because the world is full of injustices.

Thanks! That's about what I thought, but I can't think of a situation where I need to ask someone

Why do you cry, Bob?

Bob is crying. Right now. Or is he just crying all the time?
