    In this sentence, the speaker is reassuring the person who dropped their bag that they will retrieve it. The use of "will get" or "'ll get" indicates a future action that the speaker intends to perform. Both "will get" and "'ll get" are correct and convey the same meaning in this context.

    'm seeing

    The correct answer is "am going to see," 'm going to see,'m seeing,am seeing. These options all correctly use different future forms to complete the sentence. "Am going to see" and "'m going to see" both use the future form "going to" to indicate a planned action in the future. "Am seeing" and "am seeing" both use the present continuous tense to indicate a future arrangement or appointment.

    're having
    are going to have
    're going to have
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "are having," 're having, are going to have, 're going to have.

    The speaker has already made a reservation for tonight and is stating their plans for dinner. The use of "are having" and "'re having" suggests that the speaker has already arranged for a dinner reservation and it is confirmed. The use of "are going to have" and "'re going to have" indicates a future plan or intention to have dinner in Takapuna at 8 tonight.
