What is the difference between байгаа and байна? I saw sentences with the word байгаа. Чамд хэдэн төгрөг байгаа вэ? Турахын тулд дасгал хийж байгаа. What is the difference between байгаа and байна? Can I replace байгаа with байна like this? Чамд хэдэн төгрөг байна вэ? Турахын тулд дасгал хийж байна.

Yes, in most cases you can replace by байна - no problem. But generally, I would explain the difference by following examples: Чамд хэдэн төгрөг байгаа вэ? - Generally speaking, how much money do you have ? (in your bank account for example) Чамд хэдэн төгрөг байна? - How much money do you have RIGHT now, at this moment ? Би өдөр бүр дасгал хийж байгаа - I am exercising every day. Би яг одоо дасгал хийж байна - I am doing my daily exercise RIGHT now.
