    You would hear/read any one of the three, but I would be inclined to use #2.
    Thanks.

    I agree that of those three, the second is the most likely. However, I want to add that "This exercise will take a few minutes and so will the next one" is probably more likely.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
