    I answered convened too, but the book say it's convening.
    It was a "fill in the Blanks with the words given" question, which originally gave convening, among other choices.But it did modify some word some pages ago.

    And "convening" is impossible?

    Now that I'm saying it to myself, it seems to me that both answers are correct.

    Re: convene

    A dictionary, Dictionary: Online definitions and pronunciations - Yahoo! Education, tells you that 'convene' means both 'come together' and 'call together',

    'Will convene' and 'will be convened' mean therefore, virtually the same. 'Will be convening is, in this particular example, fairly similar.

    If you had checked in a dictionary, hooshdar, as I suggested in your last thread on this question, you might have been able to work out the answer to your question yourself. You would also have noticed the spelling mistake I mentioned in the last thread - convined

    I have checked that is TFD, but I didn't note the mistake, sorry.
