I agree wit Drag0nspeaker
I agree - it is not really common to use the simple present in English - unless you are talking about a repeated, habitual or continuous action or situation.
"Why are you looking so tired?" (today, you are looking tired, it is not normal)
"Why do you look so tired?" (Every time I see you, you look tired)
"What work are you doing?" (at
this exact moment
, which job are you actually doing)
"What work do you do?" (generally in life, when you go to work, what do you do?)
It is one of the most noticeable things in the speech of someone who is not used to conversational English - the two present tenses are often reversed in meaning.

I bought maximum recharge of Rs. 100 for my phone. It suites better than highest.
I buy highest recharge of rupees 100 for my phone.
In this sentence, is the word 'highest' conveys the meaning of maximum?
