Hi, Kuen: Have these people sitting on the sand come to the beach with the intention of surfing, or does the speaker mean to suggest something that they hadn't thought of doing already? When you can answer that question, tell me what you think the answer to your question is.
P.S. In English, sentences end with a period. They never end with "or."
I am very sorry that my question confused you. I meant that these people sitting on the sand have come to the beach with the intention of surfing. I think all the options from #1 to #5 are possible. Am I right?
Could you please also tell me what the answer would be in the other situation you mentioned in your last post if the speaker mean to suggest something that they hadn't thought of doing already?
Thank you very much for your correction and help.
