可以幫我解釋while的用法嗎??

下列例句

(A)While I was taking a shower,the phone rang.

(B)I smelled something burning while I was watching TV.

(C)The power failure acured while I was studying in my bedroom.

(D)While I was doing my homework,my brother was playing viedio games.

為什麼A句的電話響了不是用過去進行式呢??

當我在洗澡時,那各電話響了

    過去進行式使用時機之一就是 "過去某瞬間動作發生時 另一動作正在進行" 進行的這動作就是用過去進行

    While I was taking a shower,the phone rang.

    用線段來想

    the phone rang就是While I was taking a shower這條進行中的線段中突然發生的一點 就那一瞬間

    BC也都一樣

    While I was doing my homework,my brother was playing viedio games.

    兩個都用進行式原因很簡單 他們同時進行

    ps:

    基本上

    1.while子句必為"進行式"

    2.when子句可為"簡單式"或"進行式"

    A 句只要用過去是就OK了!如果the phone後面加was這樣rang就要變成ringing了!但是沒有was就只要用rang便可!

    while的用法是在表示兩件事情在同個時間發生!就像A句一樣!

    當我再洗澡的時候,電話響了!這就是兩件事情(洗澡,電話響)在同一個時間發生!
