    Default what's mean ?

    Hello


    what that mean????

    Not sure what you need. The modal 'will' + passive is used for predictions, decisions, and a number of other uses, often related to future events.

    1. a number of other uses

    2. often related to future events.

    Did someone write this to you, deer? It's not very informative, is it? :(

    It means,

    I am not sure how to help you. The word "will" is called a modal. In the passive voice, for example

    Active: Sam will eat cake.
    Passive: Cake will have been eaten by Sam.

    it is used to mean many things, such as predictions, decisions, and many other things that happen in the future.



    What was your original question, deer? Was it about "will". Please ask us here at usingenglish.com. :D

    Dinner is going to be served at ten o'clock.

    Here, I am interested in the food and not the people who are going to serve it, so I use the passive to focus on the food not the waiters and waitresses.
