True.
Jonathan MarianuI tend to use "b" as I find it more concise and that form is used by the better educated and wealthier.
Not true. It is generally used when we see the situation referred to as scheduled. Wealth and education have nothing to do with it.

Any of them could be used in this way. Be going to can be used when there is present evidence of a future situation

I think both c and d are correct in this context because it refers to future. But I'm not sure about other options. I need an explanation here.
all answers are correct and apply to most verbs.
