    Future continuous

    The advance language practice related exercise "What...you/do this Saturday evening? Would you like to go out" suggests that only two options are correct. Namely, are you doing and are you going to do are correct answers. Can I use also future continuous "will you doing"? Mant thanks.

    I see no reason why the future continuous shouldn't be used here. If the person being asked the question actually has something specific planned for the evening, then it's a perfectly reasonable question.

    Note, though, that you need to add "be" into the future continuous:

    What will you be doing this Saturday evening?
    What will you be eating next week?
    Where will you be sitting when you go to the theatre?
