Oh no! He (be) difficult again today.

This is the sentence and the answer from one of the lesson. I am not sure. You use Present Continuous because you are angry, you don't like the behaviour or why :)

Oh no! He (be) difficult again today.

The answer: Oh no! He is being difficult today.

Hello 1karola,

You use the Present Continuous with the verb to be when you talk about someone's behaviour at the moment.

So in your example above, the sentence "He is difficult" would mean that he is always difficult generally speaking.

But the answer: "Oh no! He is being difficult again today." means that he is difficult today , that's a temporary behavior. Maybe tomorrow he won't be that difficult (hopefully if he isn't a spoiled child ^_^ )

I hope I've answered your question.

The best
