    Choose the correct alternatives to complete the sentences.  Be careful! That chair is going to / will fall over. 

    • A.

      Is going to

    • B.

      Will

    Correct Answer
    A. Is going to
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is going to." This is because the speaker is warning someone about the future possibility of the chair falling over. "Is going to" is used to talk about future events that are already planned or expected to happen based on present evidence or circumstances. In this case, the speaker can see that the chair is unstable or in a precarious position, leading them to believe that it will fall over in the near future.

  • 5. 

    Write complete sentences. Use the future continuous or the future perfect. what/you/do/this time next week?

    Correct Answer
    What will you be doing this time next week?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "What will you be doing this time next week?" This is the correct answer because the question is asking about a future action or situation that will be happening at the same time next week. The future continuous tense is used to talk about an action that will be in progress at a specific time in the future, and in this case, it is asking about the person's plans or activities for that specific time next week.

    I/start/my exams/by the time the exchange students arrive 

    Correct Answer
    I will have started my exams by the time the exchange students arrive., I'll have started my exams by the time the exchange students arrive.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I will have started my exams by the time the exchange students arrive, I'll have started my exams by the time the exchange students arrive." This answer is correct because it uses the future perfect tense to express an action that will be completed before another future action. The phrase "by the time the exchange students arrive" indicates that the exams will already be in progress when the students arrive. The contraction "I'll" is also acceptable in informal writing.

    I/definitely/not play football/here/this time next year

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I definitely won't be playing football here this time next year, I definitely will not be playing football here this time next year." The answer is correct because it uses the future continuous tense ("won't be playing") to indicate an action that will be ongoing at a specific time in the future ("this time next year"). The negative form ("won't" and "will not") is used to express the speaker's certainty that they will not be playing football at that time.

  • 8. 

    This time tomorrow/I/sit/on a plane 

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "This time tomorrow I will be sitting on a plane" or "This time tomorrow I'll be sitting on a plane" because it indicates a future action that will be happening at the same time in the future. The use of "will be" or "I'll be" suggests a planned or anticipated event that will occur at the specified time.

  • 9.

    Correct Answer
    The chef will have opened two new restaurants in Paris by the end of the year.
    Explanation
    The given sentence is written in future perfect tense, which is used to express an action that will be completed before a specific time in the future. In this case, the action is "open" and the specific time is "by the end of the year". The sentence implies that the chef has plans to open two new restaurants in Paris and it is expected that these restaurants will be opened before the year ends.

    Angie: I remember! The train ……………………… (get) in at 3.30, so we should be home by 4.00. 

    Correct Answer
    gets, is getting
    Explanation
    Angie is recalling a past event and using the present simple tense to talk about the train's schedule. She says "The train gets in at 3.30" to indicate a regular occurrence. However, she also uses the present continuous tense "we should be home by 4.00" to talk about a future plan or expectation. By using both tenses, Angie is expressing a combination of a regular schedule and a future prediction.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Mark: Great! If you can’t come for any reason, then just give me a call. I  ……………………… (be) at home until half past two, but then I have to go out.

    Correct Answer
    will be
    Explanation
    In the given conversation, Mark states that he will be at home until half past two but then he has to go out. This indicates a future event or action that is already planned or scheduled. Therefore, the correct answer is "will be," which is the future tense form of the verb "be."

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Angie: OK, I will.  ……………………… you ……………………… (meet) your cousin on Sunday?

    Correct Answer
    Are meeting, Are you meeting, Are going to meet, Are you going to meet
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Are you meeting". This is because the sentence is asking about a future plan or arrangement, and the present continuous tense is used to talk about future plans. Therefore, "Are you meeting" is the correct form to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Mark:  I’m not sure yet. If I speak to him today, then I  ……………………… (phone) you to let you know. 

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "will phone, 'll phone". Both "will phone" and "'ll phone" are future tense forms of the verb "phone". In the given context, Mark is expressing his intention to speak to someone today and informing the listener that he will phone them to let them know about the conversation. The use of both forms emphasizes his certainty and commitment to making the phone call.

These bacteria can multiply rapidly in raw meat if it is not cooked promptly. Consuming raw or undercooked meat can lead to foodborne illnesses, causing symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and even more severe complications in some cases. Therefore, it is recommended to cook raw meat as soon as possible to ensure it is safe for consumption.
