Hi, Ahmed,

Hi, "My father.......me a present on my birthday party."

a- will buy      b-is buying

Both are grammatically correct. Using 'will' means that it is just your expectation or your prediction. Using 'is buying' means that it is arranged. You can also use 'is going to buy'.  BTW,  we have a similar question in a conversation in our books.

Ziad: This is my cousin’s e-book reader, but I really like it, so my father is buying me one for my next birthday.

Hi, Ahmed.A.A.—I agree with Ahmed_btm that both answers are correct; however, "on" is incorrect in the example sentence. "On" should be changed to "for" ("My father will buy / is buying me a present for my birthday party"). Alternatively, if "party" were deleted, "on" would be fine, since we use "on" for dates: "My father will buy / is buying me a present on my birthday.") Perhaps you could inform the test-makers of their error.
