    It remains to be seen

    I can't understand "It remains to be seen" and can you make the result?

    Q. Combine the two sentence into one.
    It remains to be seen. Will we get to the airpot in time?
    =>????

    Re: It remains to be seen

    It means that the outcome has not yet been revealed or the result is not clear yet. In order to combine those two sentences into a statement, we would say "It remains to be seen whether we [will] get to the airport on time [or not]."
