    Re: will have finished or if they finish

    How about:

    When she arrives, I'm sure she's going to tell us if they will get this job over and done with by the end of the week.

    Sorry about the first part of the sentence and pratly about the second one. The " will have finished'' thing seemed kind of complicated to use in conversation. Do you know if the tense forms in sentences 2 and 3 can be used? Your example fit fine.

    Re: will have finished or if they finish

    I'd say the sentence this way below?

    When she arrives I'm sure she's going to tell us will they've gotten this job over and done with by the end of the week.

    Is this all right?

    Thanks

    I think that they don't match.

    I've tried to say the sentence by way of not using the future perfect tense but got something which I am not sure about.
    (When she arrives I am sure she is going to tell us whether they would/could completely finish this job till the end of the week.)

    Let us wait for the teachers to explain this matter.

    In addition I'd like to tell you that I think I've found some mistakes in the quoted.

    Do you know whether the tenses in the sentences either 2 or 3 can/could be used or not? Your example fits fine.
