    thanks for your help. :)

    hello, i have a question.

    what's the difference between each other in terms of grammar? which is right?

    A.
    i知 not trusting him any more
    i知 not going to trust him anymore.

    B.
    if you say one more word of how proud they are of me, you are gonna have to leave.
    if you say one more word of how proud they are of me, you will have to leave.

    C.
    I知 sorry. It will not happen again.
    I知 sorry. It is not going to happen again.

    thanks.

    A.
    i知 not trusting him any more This is incorrect.
    Im not going to trust him anymore. This is correct.

    B.
    if you say one more word of how proud they are of me, you are gonna have to leave. This is incorrect.
    If you say one more word about how proud they are of me, you will have to leave. This is correct.

    C.
    I知 sorry. It will not happen again. This is correct.
    I知 sorry. It is not going to happen again. This is a correct sentence, but the former is better.

    thanks.
    Bhai.

    what's the difference between each other in terms of grammar? actually, i'm confused at what difference in meaning the different tenses can make? how do i know which to be used under what-kinds-of- circumstances?

    in fact, they are from subcription of the tv-play, Growing Pains.

    A.
    i’m not trusting him any more ( this is the original sentence in the play )
    i’m not going to trust him anymore. (this is a sentence i made. :p)

    B.
    if you say one more word of how proud they are of me, you are gonna have to leave.( this is the original sentence in the play )

    if you say one more word of how proud they are of me, you will have to leave. (this is a sentence i made. :p)


    C.
    I’m sorry. It will not happen again.
    I’m sorry. It is not going to happen again.

    thanks.

    Language is often used incorrectly/ungrammatically in tv shows. Please try to capitalise where appropriate. I have indicated where you should use capitals in my response to your original post.
