    Good morning for all

    I faced two sentences on internet and i don't know where is the correct one?

    2- what are your future plans?

    The second one is correct. But, as far as I know and despite being widely used, future plans is a pleonasm. And that would made both sentences wrong.

    Yes, the second is correct, and being a pleonasm doesn't make it wrong. Redundancies are not ungrammatical. We often use redundant, unnecessary and superfluous words, even if they're repetitive and not all entirely called for, or needed.
