I need assistance with the sentence below.
It will have been seen that my own main trouble was an utter lack of any sense of proportion or probability.
Could anyone let me know which tense has been used in the sentence above? Is this the regular Future Perfect that has been used to refer to the past?
Your advice is more than welcome.
I found it in a book by George Orwell (Books vs. Cigarettes). :) I found the sentence in question towards the end of the book - I thought it was rather unusual.
"It will have been noticed by my more critical readers that my grammatical structures tend towards the unusual." This sentence is OK in its place.
Thanks for letting me know.
