Anonymous:A. I will make the adjustments on the report. (simple future)
B. I will be making the adjustments on the report. (future progressive)
Is there a difference in meaning between the sentences above?
Or is there an implied time for the verb between these sentences?
C. It will be the first time that you meet your cousins.
D. It will be the first time that you will meet your cousins.
Are both sentences above acceptable?
If the second sentence is incorrect, is there a grammar rule in this kind of sentence structure?
Please advise. Thank you.
