    Will and Be Going to

    Please look at the sentence. Please confirm whether I am right that either will or going to can be used.

    No context is given.

    5. Sarah (come) to the party. Oliver (be) there as well. \

    If we put in will, the modal aspect of willingness will be empasized. If "be going to" is used, a sort of plan has likely already been made

    Thank you.
