Hi,

It's a future passive form.

Consider a simpler example: My house will be painted tomorrow ( by Tom ).

Best wishes, Clive
"will be sought out" is future simple passive

It's often used to avoid specifying the agent.

Compare:

Somebody will do the washing up. =>> The washing up will be done.

They will believe that the man landed on Mars! =>> It will be believed that the man landed on Mars!

EDIT: oops, sorry, I didn't see Clive's answer Emotion: embarrassed

What do you mean by "implies" there?
Thanks a lot for explaining this. Actually my problem is that I am not too consistent with learning english. Hmmm I think consistent is not the right word; you can say not organized. I have learned a lot of things about english but still haven't learned anything about the active and pasive voice and direct/indirect. This is most probably because I have my butt into too many things. In the morning at about 4:30 am I start with my vocab, then jump to grammar for an hour, then to Logic and then I go to college and then after taking some rest work on a business plan (that I have been working on for the last 3 - 4 months). Then I start with learnign the two different softwares that only about 0.5 to 0.6 % people in my city know and during all this time I also have to do my college assignments (if any). Thats why I learn what most interests me and thats why after 6 months of posting threads to this forum, I still make stupid mistakes like (does says and use it's and its interchangeable). But still I am motivated and determined to know this language as much as I can.
Wish me luck. Emotion: big smile

Hi GB,

I wish you good luck. May I know the names of those two softwares? By the way, how do you manage such a tight schedule of yours?

Best wishes

Grammarian-botThis is most probably because I have my butt into too many things.

Try this instead: I have my finger in too many pies.

It has the meaning you used above.

Oh, and good luck in all your studies!

Hi thanks for the reply.

Well you asked for those two softwares.
1. MS Project (It's used to manage projects of almost all kinds. It manages the time, resources and cost of your project.)
2. SPSS (It's a research tool that helps you analyze data.

And about how I manage my schedule, well that's easy. Go to bed at approx 11 pm then wake up at 4 am; no hanging out, minimum TV (only at lunch and dinner), watch one or two movies a month (the best ones and .... yes most importantly, no GIRLS (Try to avout any distraction that comes in your way).
