    I will finish my himewiork by 3 o'clock. I will have finished my homewok by 3 o'clock

    1. I will finish my homework by 3 o'clock.

    2. I will have finished my homework by 3 o'clock

    3. I will finish my homework at 3 o'clock.



    My question here is what I can answer my students if they ask

    how the future tense and future perfect are different.


    Is sentence 1 and 3 grammatical?

    Will it be safe to say sentence 1 and 2 are interchangeable to my students?

    All three are grammatically correct. #1 and #2 are for practical purposes interchangeable.
