I have my father  who came here as a visitor,, this is his second visit. It happens that I have became a US citizen during his visit. Because I was worry that he will go back home during the epidemic. I decided to apply for him to stay in the U.S.

His visa expires 04/30/2020

I  submitted I 130 on March before his visa expired(Still pending).

Now Im applying for his I-485 along with I765.

The question what should I say for the question " Are you applying for adjustment based on the immigration and nationality act(INA) Section 245(I)?"
