Let say you know someone is coming over to your house, so when he/her shows up at your door which of the following sentences is more logical to say to the person:

1) I know you are coming.

2) I knew you were coming.

3) I knew you are coming.

Which one makes more sense and why?

No. 2.
The knowing and coming are both in the past.
I believe that sentence 1: I know you are coming is also correct.

1. is not correct because they have already arrived. If they are on your doorstep they are no longer 'coming' - they are there.
Nona The Brit1. is not correct because they have already arrived. If they are on your doorstep they are no longer 'coming' - they are there.
But say you discuss the party with them over the phone. You may want to use then:
1) I know you are coming.

Hi

"when he/her shows up at your door "
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

And that should be corrected to "when he/sheshows up at your door" while we're at it. Emotion: smile
