Hi. Please help me with these.

1. What is the difference between 1 and 2 in the following answer part?

(playing soccer)

Question: What are you doing tomorrow?

Answer: 1) I will join you.

2) I will be joining you.

2. Which is correct?

He has been asking me when she would/will be joining him.

He has asked me when she would be/will be joining him.

I am sorry but this just came up. Is the question word (I think it is) "Which" always singular and thus "Which are correct" is incorrect?

Neither sounds particularly natural to me, especially the first. The second is just barely acceptable. The usual answer to such a question takes the form "I'm -ing ". I'm doing the laundry. I'm taking the kids to the beach. I'm going shopping.

They are all correct, but only this seems natural: He asked me when she would be joining him.

No.

Which are your favorite desserts?
Which go in the front and which go in the back? (speaking of parts of a machine you are assembling, for example)
