Let’s plug these in and see what happens!


I always study English on Saturdays. ---> This happens every time. (100%)


I usually study English on Saturdays. ---> This happens most of the time. (75%-90%)


I sometimes study English on Saturdays. ---> This happens half of the time. (50%)

I rarely/seldom study English on Saturdays. ---> This does not happen most of the time. (less than 15%)

Let’s review with a new sentence. Can you fill in the blank and answer the question for yourself?
